Inferior to what?    Many parts of it are wonderful,  but they have never,
except as
part of Rodion Schedrin's irresistible ballet, added up to a perfect stage
work, IMO.
Had Bizet lived longer he might have created one, or more, or better yet, a
lot of
symphonies.  With that, I may have made all the enemies I should for one
