Act I
In Seville by a cigarette factory, soldiers comment on the townspeople. Among them is Micaëla, a peasant girl, who asks for a corporal named Don José. Moralès, another corporal, tells her he will return with the changing of the guard. The relief guard, headed by Lieutenant Zuniga, soon arrives, and José learns from Moralès that Micaëla has been looking for him. When the factory bell rings, the men of Seville gather to watch the female workers—especially their favorite, the Gypsy Carmen. She tells her admirers that love is free and obeys no rules. Only one man pays no attention to her: Don José. Carmen throws a flower at him, and the girls go back to work. José picks up the flower and hides it when Micaëla returns. She brings a letter from José’s mother, who lives in a village in the countryside. As he begins to read the letter, Micaëla leaves. José is about to throw away the flower when a fight erupts inside the factory between Carmen and another girl. Zuniga sends José to retrieve the Gypsy. Carmen refuses to answer Zuniga’s questions, and José is ordered to take her to prison. Left alone with him, she entices José with suggestions of a rendezvous at Lillas Pastia’s tavern. Mesmerized, he agrees to let her get away. As they leave for prison, Carmen escapes. Don José is arrested.

第一幕
在塞維爾的一間香煙工廠旁,士兵們對路過的市民評頭論足。一個鄉下來的女孩米凱拉求見唐荷西下士。莫拉雷斯下士告訴她,唐荷西一會兒就回來。荷西隨祖尼卡中尉來換班時,得悉米凱拉來找過他。工廠的午休鈴聲響起,塞維爾的男人們聚在一起欣賞休息的工廠女工,尤其是他們最喜歡的吉普賽女郎卡門。卡門對她的仰慕者說:「愛情是自由奔騰,無拘無束的。」只有荷西正眼都不瞧她一眼。卡門將鮮花拋給荷西,而眾女工重返工作崗位。米凱拉回來找他時,荷西順手把卡門拋給他的鮮花藏起。米凱拉帶來了荷西在鄉間的母親的信。他開始讀信時,米凱拉先行離開。這時,卡門與另一女工在廠內大打出手,祖尼卡派荷西將卡門帶回查問。卡門拒絕回答祖尼卡的問題,祖尼卡命令荷西將卡門關入牢中。在與荷西獨處時,卡門邀請荷西在晚上與她幽會。荷西被卡門哄得神魂顛倒,同意放她逃走。二人離開監獄後,卡門順利逃走,而荷西則因此被捕。

Act II
Carmen and her friends Frasquita and Mercédès entertain the guests at the tavern. Zuniga tells Carmen that José has just been released. The bullfighter Escamillo enters, boasting about the pleasures of his profession, and flirts with Carmen, who tells him that she is involved with someone else. After the tavern guests have left with Escamillo, the smugglers Dancaïre and Remendado explain their latest scheme to the women. Frasquita and Mercédès are willing to help, but Carmen refuses because she is in love. The smugglers withdraw as José approaches. Carmen arouses his jealousy by telling him how she danced for Zuniga. She dances for him now, but when a bugle call is heard he says he must return to the barracks. Carmen mocks him. To prove his love, José shows her the flower she threw at him and confesses how its scent made him not lose hope during the weeks in prison. She is unimpressed: if he really loved her, he would desert the army and join her in a life of freedom in the mountains. José refuses, and Carmen tells him to leave. Zuniga bursts in, and in a jealous rage José fights him. The smugglers return and disarm Zuniga. José now has no choice but to join them.

第二幕
祖尼卡在酒館告訴卡門,荷西已獲釋。鬥牛士埃斯卡米洛來到酒館,並向卡門獻殷勤,卡門告訴埃斯卡米洛,她已心有所屬。眾人與埃斯卡米洛一起離開後,走私販子丹卡爾及雷曼達多透露他們的最新計劃。卡門的好友弗蘭斯奇塔及莫塞蒂同意加入,但卡門一口回絕,因為她已墮入愛河。荷西這時到達酒館。在與荷西獨處時,卡門故意描述她與祖尼卡跳舞的情景令荷西吃醋。荷西向卡門表明愛意,但他必須重返兵營。就在卡門嘲笑他時,荷西拿出卡門拋給他的花,並表示這將使他不會在獄中失去希望。卡門不為所動,認為如果荷西真心愛她,就應離開軍隊,與她在鄉間自由自在地生活。荷西拒絕卡門的要求,卡門一怒之下下令他離開。這時祖尼卡衝了進來,荷西心生醋意,怒火中燒,與祖尼卡大打出手。走私販子正巧回到酒館,並將祖尼卡的武器搶走。荷西走投無路之下,不得不加入他們。

中場休息


Act III
Carmen and José quarrel in the smugglers’ mountain hideaway. She admits that her love is fading and advises him to return to live with his mother. When Frasquita and Mercédès turn the cards to tell their fortunes, they foresee love and riches for themselves, but Carmen’s cards spell death—for her and for José. Micaëla appears, frightened by the mountains and afraid to meet the woman who has turned José into a criminal. She hides when a shot rings out. José has fired at an intruder, who turns out to be Escamillo. He tells José that he has come to find Carmen, and the two men fight. The smugglers separate them, and Escamillo invites everyone, Carmen in particular, to his next bullfight. When he has left, Micaëla emerges and begs José to return home. He agrees when he learns that his mother is dying, but before he leaves he warns Carmen that they will meet again.

第三幕
卡門及荷西在走私販子山區內的藏身之處激烈爭吵。卡門承認她對荷西的愛正逐漸消逝,建議荷西回到家鄉與母親一起生活。弗蘭斯奇塔及莫塞蒂為他們算命,預測到兩人死亡將至。這時,米凱拉出現,險峻的山勢和即將與卡門會面都令她感到害怕及驚恐。當她一聽到槍響時,隨即躲了起來。荷西向入侵者開槍,赫然發現入侵者竟是埃斯卡米洛。他告訴荷西,他是為了找卡門而來,兩人打起架來。走私販子將兩人分開,埃斯卡米洛邀請所有人,更特別邀請卡門,一起觀看他下一場鬥牛賽。埃斯卡米洛離開後,米凱拉出現,請求荷西回家。當荷西聽到母親已經奄奄一息時,答應回鄉探望母親,但他在離開之前警告卡門,他們會再次見面。

Act IV
Back in Seville, the crowd cheers the bullfighters on their way to the arena. Carmen arrives on Escamillo’s arm, and Frasquita and Mercédès warn her that José is nearby. Unafraid, she waits outside the entrance as the crowds enter the arena. José appears and begs Carmen to forget the past and start a new life with him. She calmly tells him that their affair is over: she was born free and free she will die. The crowd is heard cheering Escamillo. José keeps trying to win Carmen back. She takes off his ring and throws it at his feet before heading for the arena. José stabs her to death.

第四幕
在塞維爾,群眾為鬥牛士歡呼。埃斯卡米洛摟著卡門一起亮相,弗蘭斯奇塔及莫塞蒂警告卡門,荷西就在附近。卡門毫不畏懼,當人群入場時站在入口處等候荷西現身。她平靜地告訴荷西,兩人的愛情已經結束,她生來自由,亦願意為自由而死。此時鬥牛場中響起歡呼聲。荷西竭盡全力,希望挽回卡門的芳心,但卡門不為所動,並取下荷西送給她的戒指扔在地上。荷西一怒之下拔刀將卡門刺死。
