Pavarotti’s grandissimo birthday party for Bizet

The French composer Georges Bizet is absolutely ready for his birthday party! Bizet was born on 25th October 1838 and is most remembered for his wonderful opera Carmen.

Pavarotti didn’t sing in any complete opera by Bizet, not even on record, but he performed and/or recorded the famous tenor aria from Carmen, the duet from The Pearl Fishers, and the sacred aria Agnus Dei.

So let’s start Pavarotti’s grandissimo birthday party for Bizet!
