Famous operatic song from the opera “Carmen” by George Bizet, performed in original French, by a mezzo-soprano singer Zhenia. “Seguidilla” – is the second most familiar musical number after the “Habanera” sung by Carmen. In this seductive aria, Carmen is trying (and succedes!) to persuade Don Jose to break his service oath, and release her from custody.
Initially, Seguidilla (or Seguedille, Seguidille) is a traditional Castilian dance, and is one of the many Spanish area folk origins used by George Bizet for his opera “Carmen”.
