Georges Bizet: Carmen: Opera or Operette

Vocal Score | Opera or Operette
Composer Georges Bizet
Publisher Ricordi
Instrumentation Vocal and Piano Reduction

Bizet died on 3rd June 1875, exactly three months after the first performance of his Carmen, which had met with a cool reception. This caused the already undermined composer to fall into a depression which, most probably, led him to take his own life. The following October, Carmen was a triumph in Vienna and ever since this opera has been considered an all-time classic. Inspired by the tale of the same name by Prosper Mérimée (1845), the opera tells the story of the gypsy girl Carmen: a free passionate spirit, she generously gives herself in love, yet fights off all attempts to tie her down. Bizet invented music to suit her character: impetuous and passionate. And he turns Spain (a country he never actually visited) into a land of violent passion. Speaking of this opera, the philosopher Nietzsche said 'When we listen to Carmen, we too become a masterpiece'.
