Info

'Carmen' is probably the most famous opera in the whole opera-repertoire, although its premiere in 1875 was a great disappointment.
In the third act Carmen sings the aria 'En vain pour éviter': Carmen reads her fortune from a deck of cards and finds that they predict death for her. Again and again she tries but it still comes up death. She then sings that fate is unavoidable for the cards never lie.
This aria became also known as the 'Card aria'.
