On Tuesday, I asked: What is the famous aria that Don Jose sings to Carmen in the second act of George Bizet’s “Carmen?” What happened in the first act that set up the scene?
Answer: The aria is “La Fleur que tu m’avais jetee’ (the flower that you threw at me). Don Jose tells Carmen that the only thing that kept him alive in prison was the cassia flower she had thrown at his feet when he was arrested for fighting with his co-worker.

Just a kind word or a greeting;
Just a warm grasp or a smile
There are flowers that will lighten
The burdens for many a mile.
After the journey is over
What is the use of them
How can they carry them who must be carried?
Oh give them the flowers now!
