Its arias, "Haba- nera," "Seguidilla," "Toreador Song," "Flower Song" and "Card Song," are most of them light, bright and lively. Regina Resnik, America mez- zo-soprano who has been greatly acclaimed in the title role and sung it more than 250 times, is going to direct "Carmen" at the Hamburg Stage Opera, first per- formance June 6. Her theme, the opposite of light, bright and lively, is doom. Not only is Carmen doomed, in Miss Resnik's view, but every- body in the opera is doomed except the toreador Lithuania- born Arbit Blatas, sculptor- painter of expressionist style, a long-time friend of Miss Res- nik's, has designed sets and costumes. They have been work- ing together, toward a uniform presentation. This will be Miss Resnik's first directing job and Blatas's first designing for the opera. They've already been hired to collab...
