    in the famous Habanera aria. The lyrics were composed by by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy.

    And--side note that makes me chuckle--Bizet "adapted" the melody of that aria from a tune by Sebastián Yradier.

    Inspiration is a circulating fountain, huh?

    •  Thanks. I certainly wasn't aware of that... (2+ / 0-)

      ...since I am completely unfamiliar with the Habanera aria.

      But I wouldn't be surprised to see it show up in lots of other places.

      Thanks again.   I learned something.
