    Opera in Cinema: CARMEN

    An opera in four acts by Georges Bizet, with libretto by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy, Carmen is one of the world’s most popular operas. It had its world premiere at Paris’s Opéra Comique in March, 1875.

    Carmen, a gypsy cigarette girl, fights with another girl working in her factory. She is placed in the custody of Don José, an incorruptible corporal in the Spanish Civil Guard. Don José is smitten by her, and though Carmen seduces him, her heart belongs to the dashing toreador Escamillo. Obsessed, Don José follows Carmen to the bullring in Seville…with tragic consequences.
