LITERATURA Foreign Rights
In 1845, French author Prosper Merimée wrote this Romantic novel in which he portrays his vision of Spain during this period: traditional and exotic. He recounts the tale of the tragic and passionate loves of a Gypsy cigar maker, a bandit and a bullfighter. The fame of Carmen, his female protagonist, would spread throughout the world thanks to the opera by George Bizet. And she would become a great myth of a deadly, free and seductive woman, capable of dragging those around her down into ruin.
Magnificent illustrations by Benjamin Lacombe bring a powerful Carmen to life, a fascinating and dangerous woman who weaves the web of her tragic fate.
