Comments:- *Recording of a version using Guiraud's recitatives. In his review in OPERA (loc.cit.) Rodney Milnes writes as follows « Unbelievably, the EMI uses the dreadful Guiraud recitatives, even more unbelievably given that the vast majority of the cast is French. Quite apart from lowering the dramatic temperature every time the come thudding in, the recitatives betray the whole nature of the work, robbing it of the humour that is so essential a part of it, humour mostly carried in the original dialogue. I can think of no reason for this bewildering decision other than sheer laziness». On the other hand, in an interview published in DIAPASON (No.503 mai 2003 p.28) in reply to a question as to why Guiraud's recitatives were used Roberto Alagna replied «C'est le choix de Michel Plasson, auquel je souscris entièrement. Ces récitatifs sont d'une richesse dramatique et d'une saveur prosodique extrordinaires. Il est évident que Bizet n'a accepté les dialogues parlés sous les conventions de l'Opéra-Comique, de la même manière qu'un compositeur se devait d'insérer un ballet dans une oeuvre lyrique pour être joué à l'Opéra. C'est pour moi vraiment lui rendre justice que de s'en tenir à la version la plus fidèle à son dessein», See also GRAMOPHONE March 2003 pp.28-29
