Carmen, the most beautiful, intelligent and fascinating gypsy and main carachter of Bizet’s masterpiece is being proposed at the Arena 13 times: an opera that hadn’t been recognised as such immediatelly. The success arrived, ironically, after Bizet’s die so never got a chance to enjoy fame and honours he deserved. For all his life Bizet had fought for establish himself as an opera composer. Despite his talent he had a hard time representing his works, because they hardly fitted in the traditional repertoire that were likely to be staged at that time.
