Georges Bizet's opera, Carmen is one of the most famous, successful and most operas in the world’s musical history. The epic story is about beautiful but fiery gypsy girl Carmen, who finds herself in the midst of a love triangle between her boyfriend Don Jose, an army soldier, and bullfighter Escamillo.
