Toreador's Song from Carmen (3rd theme of prelude to Act I) "Votre Toast" Bizet Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
Bizet's most well-known opera, Carmen, was first performed at the Opera Comique in Paris in 1875. The critics did not like it, they said it was too risqué, and Carmen's tragic death on stage too realistic for a comic opera house. However, the public did like it. It was much more successful abroad than in France for many decades. Sadly Bizet died 3 months after its first staging, and was unable to bask in the glory of this opera's huge success the world over. This is the famous Song of the Toreadors, - the words are: Votre toast, je peux vous le rendre, Senor, senors car avec les soldats Oui, les Toreros, peuvent s'entendre; Pour plaisirs, pour plaisirs, Ils ont les combats! This Toreador's Song is featured in the final act, where Escamillo enters the bull-ring.
