Let's come together to enjoy and watch this NCPA production of the classic opera Carmen which will be broadcasted online on the 24th.

Plot:
A beautiful and stubborn gypsy girl + cigarette factory worker—Carmen is in a fight with other women and encountered cavalry squad leader Don Jose. Attracted by her wild beauty and unruly temperament, Don Jose, who was about to arrest Carmen, not only let her go, but also fell in love with her. Tempted by Carmen, Don Jose joins Carmen's gypsy smugglers and leads a wandering life with Carmen. However, Carmen later fell in love with the high-spirited bullfighter Escamillo. Don Jose begged her to change her mind, but Carmen refused. Don Jose tries to stop Carmen from finding her new love. Carmen took the ring that Don Jose had given her off her finger and threw it on the floor. Don Jose stabbed Carmen to death with a dagger he had hidden on his body, and then confessed his crime.
