Carmen was premiered at the (second) Salle Favart, the home of Paris’ Opéra-Comique – then as now in the Place Boieldieu – on 3 March 1875. Georges Bizet, its composer, died of a heart attack exactly three months later, on 3 June, aged 36. In his short life he had written, in whole or in part, more than a dozen works for the lyric stage, ranging from one-act operettas to five-act grand operas: and had contemplated at least a dozen more. He was exceptionally well connected in the tight-knit and faintly incestuous musical world of mid-19th-century Paris, and almost universally well-liked. Over 4,000 mourners attended his funeral in the Église de la Sainte-Trinité – the location of Rossini’s in 1868 and Berlioz’s the year after – including his former mentor Charles Gounod, so emotionally overwrought that he was unable to finish the eulogy at the subsequent interment at Père Lachaise. That night – 5 June – Carmen was given its 33rd performance at the Salle Favart; and this time the press that had greeted the work’s premiere with almost unanimous hostility was suddenly to be found bemoaning the loss of one of French music’s greatest talents.

Opera was never going to be the same again. Single-handedly, Carmen redrew the boundaries both musically and especially dramatically, of what could be represented on an opera stage. When it finally returned to the Comique in 1883 in a bowdlerised version, there was public uproar, and the original had to be restored immediately. And in the selfsame year, the Comique was busy rehearsing Massenet’s Manon, which effectively abandons dialogue in favour of mélodrame (speech over music) and depicts – in the flagrant seduction of a priest, in church, by a trollop – a far more shockingly immoral event than anything in Bizet’s opera. Opera’s doors were now open to a fuller, franker depiction of real-life events and emotions on the operatic stage such as Émile Zola was bringing to the novel. He never lived long enough to see it happen, but Bizet’s objective had been fulfilled. The era of operatic verismo had dawned.
