Summary In 19th century Seville, Carmen, a gypsy worker in a cigarette factory, seduces a naive Army corporal, Don José, who abandons his career, his fiancée, and his dying mother for her. It ends badly when she rejects him for the bullfighter Escamillo. Director Gavin Taylor presents the opera in the round, with a revolving catwalk around the center stage, and adds flamenco dancing.
