Bizet's Carmen is one of the most famous operas of all time. Love, jealousy, murder, vast choral set pieces, and overwhelming passion combined with a colorful Spanish setting are sure-fire ingredients for a world-wide success. All the most beautiful tunes from this opera – including the Habanera – have been arranged in easy versions. The pretty illustrations by Brigitte Smith, in color throughout, add to the attractiveness of this volume.
