“CARMEN” Georges BIZET (1838-1875)

Opera in 4 acts, on the Henri MEILHAC and Ludovic HALEVY libretto according to Prosper MERIMEE's novel.

The opera is set in 1820 Seville and tells the story of the beautiful cigarette maker CARMEN, a Gipsy woman, impulsive and unfaithful who plays with men's feelings and Love...

Its first performance to the “Opéra-comique”, in Paris on March 3, 1875 was a failure in comparison with the dramatic success that this opera was to achieve. BIZET died 3 months after the premier and in October 1875 the work was converted to Grand Opera and performed in Vienna, Brussels, London and New-York.
