An Opera by Georges Bizet
French soprano Emma Calvé (1858-1942) as Carmen in George Bizet's opera Carmen.
Calvé had a major triumph in playing the role of Carmen at the Opéra-Comique, Paris, in 1894. In preparation for this role, Calvé had traveled to Spain, where she had mingled with the Spanish people, learned Spanish dances and watched cigarette girls at work and at play.
