The story of fatal attraction between Carmen, the hot-blooded gypsy, and Don JosÃ©, the upstanding corporal in the Spanish army who's already engaged to another woman. Don JosÃ© begins to fall for Carmen as she sings the famous song of seduction, the HabaÃ±era. When he helps her avoid arrest, he is thrown in prison. Upon his release, he seeks her out; as a result, his life continues to unravel. Upon hearing his mother is dying, he heads home, vowing to Carmen that they will be together again soon. When he returns, he discovers Carmen in a rapturous affair with Escamillo, a dashing toreador. Don JosÃ©, now bitter and angry, stabs her to death just as Escamillo wins the fight in the bullring. As the spectators leave the arena, Don JosÃ© throws himself on her dead body and confesses his guilt.
