AND TREASURE TROVE OF CULTURE AND HERITAGE IN BOUGIVAL

In this home and studio at the water's edge, a temple of so much inspiration and so many innovative scores, Georges Bizet composed in part and fully orchestrated his timeless Carmen just before he died. We need to protect this emotion so it can be shared through a living museum and a new home for 21st century creators. Bearing the standard of the EMC, the “Espace Carmen”, located just opposite, will provide French and international visitors with a multi-purpose venue which will explore the genius of Bizet, the genius of Carmen, which is as worthy of admiration now as ever.

THE BASICS OF THE PROJECT

The starting point for the EMC
Music is at the heart of the EMC project, as symbolised by our first major endeavour: to save and restore the home of Georges Bizet, the brilliant composer of the opera Carmen.
Crowd-funding
The goals are to raise => €900,000 for the purchase of the house => €560,000 for its renovation => €1.54 million for the Espace Carmen
Georges Bizet's house
Under threat for many years, the home of Georges Bizet is now at the heart of the ambitious cultural and multi-disciplinary plan being carried out by the European Music Center (EMC).
The “Espace Carmen”
This would provide a visitors' reception area including space for an exhibition based on Bizet's masterpiece, a recording studio as well as a multifunctional concert hall.
