About

Despite his engagement to the local girl Micaela, the soldier Don José becomes infatuated with the rebellious Carmen, whom he arrests and later abandons. However, her unyielding spirit and unfettered independence clash with his traditional values, fuelling jealousy. The tragic climax occurs when Carmen crosses paths with the renowned bullfighter Escamillo.
