Bizet himself played the harmonium backstage at the premiere performance.

The score achieves powerful dramatic ends with the most economic of means. The play itself was not successful, closing after only 21 performances. It had been staged as a last-minute replacement for another play, which had been banned by the censors, and the audience was less than favourably disposed to the new play. The incidental music has survived and flourished, however. It is most often heard in the form of two suites for orchestra, but has also been recorded complete.
As all move off to eat, there is a reprise of the Andantino. The farandole is heard then the March of the Kings is sung by the chorus, after which the two are combined 23 Ready Or Not - Sarah Cracknell - Lipslide there is reprise for chorus of the March of the Kings Despite the poor reviews of the incidental music, Bizet arranged his work into a suite of four movements.
The first performance was at a Pasdeloup concert on 10 November The suite opens with a strong, energetic theme, which is based on the Epiphany carol "March of the Kings", played by the violins.
Afterwards, the theme is repeated by various sections. After reaching a climax, the theme fades away. The second movement, resembles a minuetwhile the third is more emotional and muted.
The last movement, Carillonfeatures a repeating bell-tone pattern on the horns, mimicking a peal of church bells.
The second suite is generally credited to Bizet since he wrote the themes and the basic orchestration. The second suite begins with an introduction by the wind section, followed by the melody in the strings. The melodies are repeated by various sections throughout the first movement. In the suite, the opening section returns and concludes the piece. In the original version, the "central" section, which was a wordless chorus sung by women, ends the piece.
The second movement intermezzo features utilization of low tones and begins with the wind section. Guiraud adds twelve additional bars to the concluding section. Sometime after this second suite was prepared from the L'Arlesienne music, Guiraud extracted the Intermezzo movement, added the Latin sacred text of the Agnus Dei to it, and published it as yet another "new" work of Bizet.
The finale, the farandoleincorporates the theme of the March of the Kings once again. This is an expanded combination of numbers 21 and of the original incidental music, in which the farandole appears first on its own. It is afterwards briefly combined with the march. The suites have been recorded many times. There are at least two recordings of the complete incidental music for the play, one conducted by Albert Wolff  and another by Michel Plasson who has also recorded both suites.
