Genivet was peintre-décorateur. Other singers: Depoitiers (F), J. Blainville (Mer), L. Reine (DanC), Férêt (R), Sernin (Mor), Rougé (Z). 7 performances: 11, 13, 16, 18, 20, 26, 30 April 1877. ‘Grand Théâtre de Lyon, Troupe et Répertoire, 1807-1897’ shows that there was no love affair between the Lyonnais public and Carmen. The opera appears in following seasons, but not every season, for between 5 and 14 performances each season, and generally brings in dismal amounts in ticket sales. Galli-Marié’s 3 guest performances in 1882 are not mentioned in this source.
