Contents: Carmen is one of the most frequently performed of all operas,and the most successful of Georges Bizet's works. Following its premiere at the Opera-Comique in Paris in 1865 it has gone on to appear in all the major opera houses of the world. With its searing depictions of passion, obsession and jealousy it has never lost its hold on the opera going public.

This guide contains a complete version of the French libretto (including the rarely performed Scene de l'Anglais) and an English translation featuring the full dialogue as well as the recitatives added later. There are also thirty-six black-and-white and color illustrations, a musical thematic guide, a discography, a bibliography, and DVD and website guides.
