Carmen is a freedom-loving woman who casts a spell on any man that crosses her path. Don José is a buttoned-down sergeant who falls for her charms. But when she turns her attention to another, José’s love turns into obsession. With Carmen, Bizet created a true operatic classic replete with passion and sweeping melodies.
