On the way to her camp, the 93.6 FM played Carmen, arranged for a solo violist (forgot his name, lol) with Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra,conducted by Claudio Abbado.  I thought about the East German figure skater Katarina Witt (where is she now?) who won her second gold medal on Carmen (long program) in 1988, worn a blood red dress.  That’s was one of the best performance.  It etchs to my mind so vividly and deep that every time when I hear the Carmen arias, Denyce Graves comes distance second.
