Carmen • Baths of Caracalla 2022
The libretto was written by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy. The story is based on the novella Carmen by Prosper Mérimée
The Opera premiered in Paris in 1875 without much success. Georges Bizet did not experience the international breakthrough since he died in 1875, a few months after the premiere at the age of 36.
Today Carmen is one of the most popular and most frequently performed operas in the world.
The plot of the opera takes place in Andalusia, mainly in Seville.
It’s about seduction and love, jealousy and disappointed hope.
The guard Don José falls in love with the gypsy Carmen, although his mother wants him to marry the orphan Micaëla. The beautiful smuggler Carmen promises Don José hot nights of love. When Carmen has to go to prison because of a quarrel in the factory, Don José helps Carmen escape from prison and has to do it himself.
The bullfighter Escamillo is also in love with Carmen, fate takes its course and in the end, the disappointed Don José Carmen stabs to death.
