The Flower Duet From the opera Lakmé

By Léo Delibes (Arranged for Guitar Solo by Dan Jones)

The Flower Duet was written by the French composer Léo Delibes. It is set for two voices (soprano and mezzo-soprano) and occurs during act one of Delibes’ opera Lakmé which was premiered in Paris in 1883.

Your single download will provide you with the score in notes and TAB and also in a notes-alone version.

The work is one of the best-loved arias of all time. It has become iconic due to its use in TV, film, and advertising. Most recently, it is known as the soundtrack to a British Airways commercial.

The aria makes an ideal piece of repertoire for advanced-intermediate and professional guitarists. It is perfect for those playing gigs, in restaurants, at weddings and as a piece of popular repertoire in a recital.

My arrangement is inspired by one made by the fantastic guitarist and arranger Bridget Mermikides. I am grateful to Bridget follow allowing me to develop the arrangement to create something which is more suited to the advanced-level player.
