About this title


Georges Bizet's final opera, Carmen, has become one of the best-known plots with the most memorable of music, despite its initial rejection by Paris critics following its scandalous 1875 premiere at the Opera-Comique, a theatre known for works of a lighter flavour. Basing their work on Prosper Merimee's novella, librettists Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halevy have fashioned a timeless story of love, jealousy, and violence in the Spanish city of Seville, all set into motion by Carmen, a seductive, free-spirited femme fatale."

About the Author:

David Pizzigoni is a Milan-based artist and designer whose opera credits include sets and costumes for productions in Zurich and Vienna. J.D. McClatchy, who lives in New York and Stonington, Connecticut, is editor of the Yale Review and author of four collections of poetry and four original opera libretti.
