Program Notes

Georges Bizet composed L'Arlésienne as incidental music to Alphonse Daudet's play of the same name, usually translated as The Girl from Arles. It was first performed on 1 October 1872 at the Théâtre du Vaudeville in Paris. Bizet's music consists of 27 numbers (some only a few bars) for voice, chorus, and small orchestra, ranging from short solos to longer entr'actes. Bizet himself played the harmonium backstage at the premiere performance.

The Farandole (Danse dei Chivau-Frus), which begins quietly and builds to a climax, sees Frédéri respond with fury to Mitifio who has come to tell Balthazar that he will run off with the girl from Arles.
