Bizet’s opera Carmen, from a novella by Prosper Mérimee, is about the flamboyant, tragic figure of the gypsy woman Carmen and her lovers. Mérimee was also an archaeologist and historian, and much of his descriptive writing was based on observation. Carmen famously worked in the tobacco factory in Seville but, far from being a dusty warehouse, this Baroque palace was the second-largest building in Spain. Simon Rees has worked as dramaturg on many productions of Carmen, and has photographed these and other locations in Seville, as well as researching costumes, sets and original productions, and musical illustrations, to give a vivid picture of Bizet’s most famous opera.
