Tune of the Day: Toreador Song

from Georges Bizet's “Carmen”

This is one of the most famous arias from the opera Carmen. Sung by the matador Escamillo, it describes various situations in the ring, the cheering of the crowds and the fame that comes with victory.

If you haven't figured out what song is this yet, download the MP3 or the MIDI and listen to the final part, the one in F major. That is the part that almost everybody knows; if you want, you may well start playing from there.
