Carmen is an opera in four acts by the French composer Georges Bizet. The opera, which became Bizet's most famous work, was first performed at the Opéra-Comique in Paris, on March 3, 1875, and was not at first particularly successful; its initial run extended to 36 performances. Before this run was concluded, Bizet died suddenly, and thus knew nothing of the opera's later celebrity. This is the choral score of the work, with French and English texts, and without notated accompaniment. 79 pages, 7 by 8 ½ inches.
