Range Les adieux de l'hôtesse arabe

Les adieux de l’hôtesse arabe, a setting by Victor Hugo, was composed by Georges Bizet in 1867 (C minor) and published the same year. It is also known as Bizet’s opus WD 72.

In 1867, Bizet is close to his thirties when is composes Les adieux de l’hôtesse arabe. His beginnings as a composer are difficult and none of his works have yet met great success. This song is dedicated to Caroline Felix Carvalho, a soprano that premiered most of his feminine operatic roles. Her husband and agent, Léon Carvalho, will play a significant role in promoting Bizet’s works.

Les adieux de l’hôtesse arabe is strongly connected to the orientalism French art movement of the 19th century, where artists use fantasied representations of foreign cultures to inspire their art works. Bizet frequently chose exotic themes as source of inspiration (for example the subject of his opera, Les Pêcheurs de Perles). In Les adieux de l’hôtesse arabe, the irregular pulse at the piano part seems to figure a sensual exotic dance while the melismatic vocalizes, at the vocal line, sound inspired by some oriental melody.
