The Spanish gypsy Carmen seduces the young soldier Don José, but their torrid love affair turns sour as he attacks his leader, shirks his duties, and leaves his lifelong sweetheart to join Carmen’s band of smugglers.  Carmen soon grows tired of Don José, leaving him for the flashy bullfighter Escamillo. Don José seeks revenge.
