March of the Toreadors (From the opera Carmen) (Theme) Sheet Music by Georges Bizet
For this version, first staged on 23 October , Bizet's friend Ernest Guiraud replaced the original dialogue with recitatives, to create a " grand opera " format. Despite its deviations from Bizet's original format, and some critical reservations, the Vienna production was a great success with the city's public. It also won praise from both Wagner and Brahms. The latter reportedly saw the opera 20 times, and said that he would have "gone to the ends of the earth to embrace Bizet".

The successful Her Majesty's production, sung in Italian, had an equally enthusiastic reception in Dublin. On 23 October the opera received its American premiere, at the New York Academy of Music , and in the same year was introduced to Saint Petersburg. In the following five years performances were given in numerous American and European cities. The opera found particular favour in Germany, where the Chancellor, Otto von Bismarck , apparently saw it on 27 different occasions and where Friedrich Nietzsche opined that he "became a better man when Bizet speaks to me".
In August the singer wrote to Bizet's widow to report that Carmen ' s Spanish premiere, in Barcelona, had been "another great success". Carvalho was roundly condemned by the critics for offering a travesty of what had come to be regarded as a masterpiece of French opera; nevertheless, this version was acclaimed by the public and played to full houses. The New York Times welcomed Bizet's "pretty and effective work", but compared Zelia Trebelli 's interpretation of the title role unfavourably with that of Minnie Hauk.
Afterwards he sat up until 3 am reading the reviews in the early editions of the following day's papers. The popularity of Carmen continued through succeeding generations of American opera-goers; by the beginning of the Met alone had performed it almost a thousand times. Dean has commented on the dramatic distortions that arise from the suppression of the dialogue; the effect, he says, is that the action moves forward "in a series of jerks, rather instead of by smooth transition", and that most of the minor characters are substantially diminished.
Fritz Oeser 's edition is an attempt to fill this gap, but in Dean's view is unsatisfactory. Oeser reintroduces material removed by Bizet during the first rehearsals, and ignores many of the late changes and improvements that the composer made immediately before the first performance;  he thus, according to Susan McClary , "inadvertently preserves as definitive an early draft of the opera".

Dean places Bizet's realism in a different category from the verismo of Puccini and others; he likens the composer to Mozart and Verdi in his ability to engage his audiences with the emotions and sufferings of his characters. Bizet, who had never visited Spain, sought out appropriate ethnic material to provide an authentic Spanish flavour to his music.
However, Dean insists that "[t]his is a French, not a Spanish opera"; the "foreign bodies", while they undoubtedly contribute to the unique atmosphere of the opera, form only a small ingredient of the complete music. The prelude to act 1 combines three recurrent themes: the entry of the bullfighters from act 4, the refrain from the Toreador Song from act 2, and the motif that, in two slightly differing forms, represents both Carmen herself and the fate that she personifies.

The mock solemnities of the changing of the guard, and the flirtatious exchanges between the townsfolk and the factory girls, precede a mood change when a brief phrase from the fate motif announces Carmen's entrance. The tranquillity is shattered by the women's noisy quarrel, Carmen's dramatic re-entry and her defiant interaction with Zuniga. Newman describes it as "an exquisite miniature, with much dialoguing and intertwining between the woodwind instruments".

After Bizet's death, his friend Ernest Guiraud adapted key musical themes from Carmen into two symphonic suites that are frequently programmed by orchestras. In , the Spanish violinist and composer Pablo de Sarasate — wrote a Carmen Fantasy for violin, described as "ingenious and technically difficult".
In stage director Peter Brook produced an adaptation of Bizet's opera known as La Tragedie de Carmen , a minute version that focused on four main characters, eliminating choruses. The major arias were reworked for chamber orchestra. He first produced it in Paris, and it has since been performed in many cities. The character "Carmen" has been a regular subject of film treatment since the earliest days of cinema. The films were made in various languages and interpreted by several cultures, and have been created by prominent directors including Raoul Walsh ,  Cecil B.
