The harp part for Suite 1 of Georges Bizets' 1875 comic opera Carmen. Suite No. 1 and Suite No. 2 are composed of movements drawn from the opera by Ernest Guiraud. This work, which premiered at the Opera Comique in March of 1875 was not well-received initially (due in part to the scandal caused by the story's treatment of love and betrayal) but has become one of the most famous operas in the genre. The music from this work, particularly the "Prelude," "Habanera" and "Toreador" song have become ubiquitous in popular culture. Because the opera is based in Seville, Spain the music has many elements of traditional Spanish music and dance forms. The harp plays a prominent role in this symphonic work, particularly in its duet with the flute in the "No. 2 Intermezzo."
