Power, passion, fate.

This adaptation of the opera Carmen, by Bizet, is a burst of erotic power. The unstoppable leading lady, in charge of a contraband gang of tough guys, also rules without discrimination in the bedroom. Music and dance are drugs and weapons. She is irresistible, and unconquerable.

--A jaw-dropping musical drama about a woman in control of her life.
