Frightening & Intense Scenes
Sex & Nudity
Unlike other versions, Carmen is murdered while nearly nude in a public church.
Violence & Gore
While it is staged rather poetically and without blood, the murder of Carmen is especially upsetting in this version because she is completely naked except for a shawl that she wraps around herself as Don Jose stabs her. In contrast to other versions, in which she appears tough right up until the end, the final scene in this version makes her seem especially vulnerable.
