Karmen Movie Poster

Based on a novel by Prosper Mérimée, this musical focuses on Karmen Geï, a charismatic woman whose influence destroys the men who flock to her. Incarcerated in Kumba Castle, a women's prison, Karmen charms her way into the bed of straight-laced warden Angelique with her sensual dancing, then escapes while Angelique is asleep. Incapable of keeping out of trouble, Karmen peppers her performance at the wedding of Colonel Lamine Diop with revolutionary insults, and starts up a smuggling organization.
