This year, the Gars Opera Festival hosts “Carmen”. This piece is one of the ten most performed operas of all time. We know little about the composer Georges Bizet. The Musical Salon takes us from the first talent tests of the prodigy from Paris to his failed attempts to gain a foothold in musical theater to rehearsals for work that was destined to become a world hit, which he was not, in turn allowed to try.
