Jana Sykorova, Prague Carmen

Jana Sykorova, Prague Carmen The first night of Bizet’s Carmen in Paris in 1875 passed almost unnoticed, without success. Only eight years after Bizet’s death did Carmen triumphantly enter opera houses and ever since has been one of the most frequently staged operas. Librettists Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy were inspired by Prosper Merimé’s extensive novelette on beautiful and reckless Carmen, whose volatile life is ended by the hand of the refused lover, and rendered the story as an impressive tragedy imbued with dazzling Spanish atmosphere. Bizet’s masterpiece still fascinates contemporary audiences by the magnificent color of the orchestra, the sense of engrossing drama and splendid melodic arias.
