"Carmen" - Opera by Georges Bizet in 4 acts, libretto by Meilhac and Halevi based on the novel by Prosper Merimee.
Georges Bizet began work on the opera "Carmen" in 1874. The premiere of "Carmen" was held in France in Paris in the theater "Comedy-Opera" March 3, 1875 and ended in complete failure. Even Parisians, who were considered experienced viewers were not ready for such realism on stage.
Metropolitan French newspapers competed in hlestkost critical reviews of the opera "Carmen."
But as often happens, that such reviews have created a "Carmen" enormous popularity, and only on the stage of the Paris comic opera only in the season premiere, it took no less than fifty performances. Nevertheless, "Carmen" long disappeared from the Paris staging and was restored only in 1883, as amended by Ernest Hiro (Hiro replaced spoken dialogue recitatives, and added some ballet scenes, using music from other works by Georges Bizet). In no small sense, the return of opera to the Parisian scene contributed to its success the opera "Carmen" cities of Europe, Russia and America. Back in 1880, Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky wrote:
- Bizet's opera - a masterpiece, one of the few things that was destined to see a musical in the strongest degree of commitment of an entire era. In ten years "Carmen" is the most popular opera in the world ...
The words were prophetic Tchaikovsky. Opera "Carmen" and to this day is one of the most popular theatrical performances.
