Prosper Merimée novel, 1845, and Georges Bizet opera, 1875, about a Spanish gypsy woman

Fishburn and Hughes: "The main character of an opera by Bizet, which was first produced in 1875, with a libretto by Meilhac and Halévy based on a novel by Prosper Mérimée. Its melodramatic plot of love and death, gypsies, soldiers and toreadors creates what seems a typically Spanish ambience." (40)
