Robert's imaginative piano arrangement of the colorful and memorable melodies from the Opera “CARMEN” - a story that takes place in Spain in the 1800’s. A soldier, Don Jose falls in love at first sight with a gypsy girl named Carmen. During their love affair, he deserts the army. This is all in vain for Carmen abandons him for a bullfighting matador. Distraught and miserable, Don Jose stabs her to death.
I've always enjoyed the music from this opera ever since I first heard an adaption of it performed in 1966 at my high school in Pennsylvania. Enjoy!
