Monday's mystery piece. Carmen Suite No. 2 comes from an enticing opera written by Georges Bizet, a French composer born in 1838.
Carmen was sprinkled through a 1976 movie which critic Roger Ebert called "an unblinking, scathing look at competition in American society.” The Bad News Bears starred Walter Matthau as an alcoholic minor-league baseball star recruited to coach a team of all the worst players, the Bears. You may remember the two sequels, TV series, and 2005 remake.
Tomorrow's mystery piece comes from a total bookworm. 6:40 a.m.
