Due to prolonged works at Mariinsky, this production was premiered at Bolshoi Kamenny nearby. The second cast featured Emilia Karlovna Pavlovskaya in the role of Carmen for only a few performances. Libretto translated into Russian by Alexandra Santagano-Gorchakova.
Choreography by M. Petipa.
Other performers to play Carmen during this run include Bellincioni (1895), Medea Figner (1916) and Lidarskaya (1916).
Pigot (266) cites the Ménestrel of 7 January 1882 regarding a reprise with La Rue as Carmen.
