Review of Phyllis Pancella in the title Role of Carmen
English National Opera - Jonathan Miller production (May 1, 1999)
"American mezzo Phyllis Pancella lived  up to advance billing in her British debut  with ENO, in a revival of Jonathan  Miller's finely judged Carmen on May 1.  Not only was the role consistently well sung, with no obvious striving for effect and with rich tone produced throughout the range at all dynamic levels, but her every word registered."
"... Pancella turned in a memorable Carmen. The essential qualities were all on display -- sexual allure, fierce independence, intelligence, unscrupulousness and fatalism -- building a complex, fascinating portrait. "
Phyllis sings :
I want to be a Cowboy's Sweetheart
Blue Bayou
Walkin' After Midnight
When  I Stop Dreaming
