Carmen Suite No. 1, from the famous opera by Georges Bizet, consists of the preludes to each act, except (#3) Séguedille, which is a vocal piece.  In this transcription (#3) Séguedille and (#5) Les Toréadors are transposed up a half step from the original keys, while the others remain in the original.

 

Unlike other concert suites, many music directors take the liberty of re-ordering the suite, starting with (#5) Les Toréadors, for instance, or selecting a few movements from both the first and second suites and program it as a "Carmen Suite."

 

Parts No. 3552 are transposed from the original parts which are indicated in brackets, with or without modification.
