George Bizet, born today in 1838, is best known for his 1875 opera version of Carmen, based on a novella by Prosper Merimee. Obviously, each was in touch with his Inner Rhino; it accounts for the fiery assault of the music and the story.

Rhinos all like this piece, whatever it is about. Clearly this Carmen is a gal who takes no prisoners, goes for the gusto, and plays a mean castanet. With qualifications like those, what more is needed?

The opera takes place in Seville, Spain, where polka dots are the rage. And it is plain why that would be. Right?!?
