Written by the French composer Georges Bizet, the opera was first performed in Paris in March 1875. Its initial run was
extended to 36 further performances yet unfortunately Bizet died before he could see its success. Produced as an opera comique,
in which musical numbers are separated by dialogue, the showdetails the life of Don Jose, who is put on guard duty after titular
character attacks another woman with a knife. Seduced into letting her go, Jose is sentenced to one month in prison whilst
the beautiful gypsy enters into cohorts with a band of smugglers. A series of complex events leads to a tragic consequence
that still leaves audiences just as gripped now as when the show premiered.
