The Naked Carmen is a 1970 recording by David Hess and John Corigliano. It is described as an "electric rock opera" by the creators.

Critical reception[edit]

Robert Christgau of The Village Voice gave The Naked Carmen a "C" and dubbed it "the aptest instance of overpretension in the history of rock-is-art", although he said that its country-western version of "The Toreador Song" "works beautifully."[1]
