History

Carmen

World premiere: 1887.

Georges Bizet’s original Carmen, takes place in and around Seville, Spain and tells of the downfall of a soldier, Don José, seduced by the wiles of the fiery Carmen. José abandons his sweetheart and his military duties for Carmen, yet loses her love to the glamorous matador Escamillo, after which José kills her in a jealous rage.

On January 9, 1884, Carmen premiered at the Metropolitan Opera. Thereafter it was quickly incorporated into the Met's regular repertory staging Carmen well-over a thousand times.  The Met Opera’s 2023-2024 Season debuts a vital new production of Carmen, reinvigorating the classic story with a staging that moves the action to the modern day and finds at the heart of the drama issues that could not be more relevant today: gendered violence, abusive labor structures, and the desire to break through societal boundaries.

Among the best-known of all operatic arias are Carmen’s “Habanera” from Act 1, sung by the title character and the toreador’s song, “Votre toast” in Act 2, performed by the matador Escamillo.
