Tune of the Day: La fleur que tu m'avais jetée

from “Carmen” by Georges Bizet, arranged for Flute and Piano

This gorgeous tenor aria is taken from Act II of Georges Bizet's famous opera Carmen. After being released from prison, corporal Don José visits Carmen at the tavern. When he hears the bugle call for him to return to his regiment, Carmen mocks his loyalty. To prove his love for her, he reveals the dried and wilted flower that she had given him when they first had met. He tells her that the flower was what had kept his faith and hope of reuniting with her after his release:

The flower that you threw to me
Remained with me while I was in prison.
Withered and dried, the flower
Always maintained its sweet scent.

Thanks to Luis for suggesting this piece!
