I found she was in Carmen, but in the role of Michaela, did she have a dagger, of course it may have been another opera altogether .

Strange my first thought was Lady McBeth.
I notice she wearing the same bodice & shoes as Mrs. Gordon on the bomb site.

I immediately thought of Lady Macbeth too.

'Is this a dagger that which I see before me....'

And don't mention the Play  :-X

PS - did Michaela have a dagger during the fight? I'm not an opera fan.
