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.
Bizet started many theatrical projects during the 1860s, most of which he abandoned. Neither of the two operas that reached the stage - 'The Pearl Fishers' and 'La jolie fille de Perth' – were immediately successful. 'The Pearl Fishers' later won more popularity for its beautiful duet. Pictured is a 1954 production of 'The Pearl Fishers' at Sadler's Wells, London.
