Presentation

No need to introduce Bizet’s masterpiece, the most representative of French operas, maybe the most often performed opera in the world. Gypsies, bandits, soldiers and toreadors inhabit a work where all passions are drawn to extremes, from love to death.
Bizet was a genius; however he did not live long enough to see the success of Carmen: the creation in March 1871 was a failure and he died 3 months later. Yet for more than a century and a half, Don José, Escamillo and Carmen have triumphed in operas all around the world, for Bizet’s greatest glory.



Opera in 4 acts, on a libretto by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy.

Created on 3rd March 1875 at the Opéra Comique in Paris.
