Opera Hong Kong: Carmen

The story, set in Seville, Spain in the 1820s, sees a military man, Don José fall in love with Carmen, a gypsy. After a fight, she is arrested but with the help of Don José, she manages to escape and it’s he who is imprisoned. Upon his release, Carmen persuades him to join her and her smuggler friends. But soon, Carmen loses interest in Don José and is smitten by the bullfighter Escamillo. The tale ends in tragedy when Don José, in a fit of blind jealousy, stabs Carmen to death.
