According to the beautiful and tempestuous Carmen, love is a rebellious bird, here today and gone tomorrow. Don José, loved by the peasant girl Micaëla, is bewitched by Carmen and although she temporarily encourages his advances, she soon becomes bored by him. While attending the bull fight of the triumphant Escamillo, the half-crazed Don José accosts Carmen and stabs her to death. A perennial favourite, the opera "Carmen" is Bizet's undisputed masterpiece.
