The French Romantic composer Georges Bizet is best known for the world’s favourite opera 'Carmen', and 'The Pearl Fishers', but he achieved little success during his lifetime.
Georges Bizet was born in Paris on 25 October 1838. His father was a singing teacher and his mother was an accomplished pianist who gave Georges his first lessons. The Paris Conservatoire was so impressed by the boy’s abilities that it waived its age rule and offered him a place when he was nine.
