On the 22nd of June opens the 2018 Lyric Season at the Arena of Verona with Carmen.
Carmen is a work in four pictures (so called by Bizet), or acts, by Georges Bizet, on a booklet by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy. It is based on the novel by Prosper Mérimée, to which Bizet brings some salient changes including the introduction of the characters of Escamillo and Micaela, and changes the personality of Don José, which in the novel is described as a rough and brutal bandit. To the booklet collaborated Bizet himself who also wrote the words of the famous Habanera “L’amour est un oiseau rebelle”. His first performance took place at the Opéra Comique in Paris on the 3rd March 1875.
