The story of Carmen: Carmen, the infamous gypsy at the center of Bizet’s seductive masterpiece, warns the men she attracts immediately: she is not a woman to be tamed. When she sets her sights on a trusting soldier, Don José, nobody is prepared for the events that follow.

As a dashing toreador enters the equation, Carmen finds her attractions shifting to the handsome bullfighter, pushing José to the brink of desperation. Bizet’s sensual score, featuring the famous Habanera, provides the perfect backdrop for the story of the iconic gypsy and the men who can’t help but love her.
