ABSTRACT
An interview with writer John Berger about Sally Potter's English National Opera stage production of the drama "Carmen" is presented. He describes the representation of Potter's character Carmen in the real world. Berger believes that Potter's stage production completely breaks out from the elitist tradition. One of the scenes in "Carmen" that he considers as breathtaking is the introduction of the dancers and the tangos that shadow the singers.
