Georges Bizet

While in the original version Carmen is stabbed to death by Don José, Maggio Musicale Fiorentino’s new production of Bizet’s opera is ending differently. Concerned by the daily violence against women in Italy, opera director Leo Muscato wrote a new finale for Bizet’s Carmen which will premiere on January 7. In his new version, Carmen is not murdered, but shoots Don José with a gun.
