This ballet has been interpreted by many ballet companies over the years and currently remains within their repertoire.
Carmen is a gypsy, a very beautiful and sensual one. But she is terrible in her passions and plays with the feelings of three men, Don José, Bullfighter Escamillo, and Captain Zúñiga. Carmen represents a passionate woman who opposes and challenges the prejudiced society of her time. She works in a cigar factory where she has problems with some work friends and is taken to jail by order of Captain Zuñiga, who is actually in love with Carmen but is rejected by her.
Carmen finds herself in a love triangle and crossroads, between Don Jose and Escamillo. Don José, seeing that his beloved has betrayed him while also being blinded by jealousy, begs Carmen to choose him. Given the refusal of the gypsy to give up her freedom, Don José kills her with a passionate and painful stab. Carmen's hand seeks the face of Don José, who sees his beloved die and Carmen’s destiny becomes a reality.
