But look, that’s not what I wanted to talk about. I heard you singing just now, and I thought, hey, she’s just like me. What you said about love being, how did you put it, a wild bird no one can tame So I said to myself, I bet this girl has man trouble too.
Like, I’ve got this guy, he’s great, don’t get me wrong, but there’s this other man. He doesn’t say much, kind of the quiet type, but I just can’t get him out of my head. So what do you think, should I leave Hank and get together with John Galt?
The thing is, I just don’t love Hank anymore. You’re right, it just flew off. Nothing to be done. But hey, I just keep talking about myself. I’ve got a more optimistic take on things, I’m going to leave Hank, like, I mean I have to, but we’ll still be great friends and at the end he’ll help me rescue my new lover. Look, I was written by a woman, you know? I guess your author is a dead white European male? But, you know, objectively those are the breaks, right?
Oh shit, is that the time? I gotta run, crisis meeting in five minutes. Look, it’s been great talking. Do you think we’ll ever meet again? Mais pas aujourd’hui, c’est certain. But strong and passionate at the same time. I could learn a lot from you.

Sep 19, Walter Schutjens rated it really liked it Shelves: But in none was the tragic hero so screwed over as in this piece. And in none was the empathy more powerful. Wild, free, and untamed. A gypsy woman with the ability to “cast a spell” to the men who saw her.
Had he listened, he might still have his job, his fiancee, and his normal life. The book contained the iitaliano of the opera C libetto is a rebellious bird. The book contained the history of the opera Carmenconclusion of each act, two CDs of songs from the opera, and libretto in French and English translation. I was so lucky to find this book at buzet prize. Unfortunately, this was the only opera book I could find librettoo the store. Hopefully I will encounter the other titles in the future.
Oct 24, Mike rated it it was amazing Shelves: While this marvelous opera retains the basic plot of the novella, its most famous moments are either partly or entirely original: Despite its longish length of four acts, the opera moves bozet from one classic aria to another.
Essential reading and viewing. An in depth hardcover book featuring the libretto, with annotations, and history behind the Opera and Bizet himself along with a two CD audio companion. Makes for a great read a long of sorts whilst listening to this lovely Opera. Well worth it if you can find them. Jan 12, Gregory Byerline rated it really liked it Shelves: First time reading an opera libretto though it won’t be my last.
In this case, I don’t speak French so the English translation helped convey the story as I listened to the great Maria Callis as Carmen.
Prior to reading, the opera was simply a cast of singers screaming at each other. Now I hear the story unfold. Mar 28, Tslyklu rated it it was amazing. Carmen’s presence seems to disturb passing of time, some force field around her.
Like that her death isn’t the carmenn of bullshit you get in so many woman dies for love scenes where the woman just swoons away and you know she’ll be replaced carmfn another woman and there’s another cycle coming on, when her field’s pierced it bursts like a bomb and nothing in the world can be as it was Zeer duidelijk en makkelijk om te volgen, ook als carmenn moeite hebt om noten te lezen –of Frans.
This book includes the complete libretto in the original French with English translation; the complete recording on two audio CDs; and explanatory notes. This opera italano include themes which are not appropriate for children, as the end is tragic. I love the music, especially the aria La Habanera!
I enjoyed the opera but it was a poor recording so I really had to strain to hear it. I did enjoy how they explain the opera and the cast of characters. The music was excellent.
