From HBO's award-winning composer series comes the story of composer Georges Bizet and his young piano student, Michelle. Bizet is writing the opera Carmen, and Michelle's father is a soldier in Seville and has been away a long time. Michelle begins to wonder if her father has run away with another woman like Don Jose does in her teacher's opera. Although Maurice Godin does a fantastic job bringing the flamboyant character of Bizet to life, children are drawn to the drama surrounding Michelle's father. Will he come back? Will she ever see him again? This installment of the series introduces the music of Bizet, and though it doesn't include as much historical information as the others, it's still a valuable teaching aid for performing arts programs. Recommended for ages 9 to 12.
