George BIZET

Classical music

The opera 'Carmen' is widely recognized as the 'perfect' opera - the plot makes sense, the music is hit melody after hit melody, and the staging can almost never fail to be ravishing. It is surely unbelievable that this opera's first performance bombed. Nevertheless, the humble composer got ill and died within a couple of weeks - and THEN the opera was a smash hit. And has been ever since. The overture is as festive as any, and everybody knows the Toreador-theme.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
