According to local Spanish history, Carmen Amaya was notorious less for being a Gypsy femme fatale than a lippy defender of underpaid workers and women's rights. Yet once the novelist Prosper Merimee had written her into the French literary canon (1845), and Bizet had giftwrapped her for opera (1875) she became an international icon for sultry and uninhibited sex.<P><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://globalarchive.ft.com/globalarchive/article.html?id=020330000426&query=ballet" TARGET=_blank> <B> MORE </B> </A>
