Summary Una historia de deseo, traición y seducción. Una de las historias más populares del mundo, sobre una mujer gitana sensual y hechicera con un carácter indomable y con la capacidad de corromper a cualquier hombre.
In 19th century Seville, the lusty, tempestuous Carmen seduces a native Army corporal, Don Jose. Jose abandons his career, his fiancee and even his dying mother for the love of this sultry gypsy. But soon she spurns him for the love of a toreador, Escamillo. Crazed with jealousy, Jose begs Carmen to return to him, but her taunting declaration of independence results in tragedy.
