Synopsis

A square in Sevilla, soldiers are whiling away the time in front of their guardhouse, with their captain Zuniga who is very well known among the ladies. In a change of guards, Don José is about to take Zuniga’s place. The women from the factory pour into the square, eagerly watched by the men. Carmen enters and immediately recognizes José as a newcomer who, on the other hand, shows no notice of her at first, but her affection is burned into his memory.
Micaela who is longing for Don Josè’s love is bringing a letter from his mother in which she expresses her wishes that Micaela becomes his wife.
Carmen is lazy to work her shift and an argument between her and Fernanda breaks out in the factory. Attracted by the noise, the crowd storms inside. Carmen has injured Fernanda, who accuses her to José and he escorts Carmen to custody.
Carmen seduces Don José and promising to spend the night with him, persuades him to let her go. Don José remains torn between desire and his sense of duty. Her best friend Mercedes helps her escape. When Zuniga finds out that José failed to fulfill his duty, he discharges him, and goes after Carmen.
Having escaped custody, Carmen and her friends are celebrating the arrival of the re- nowned torero Escamillo who is immediately attracted to Carmen, and vice versa. After spending a night with Escamillo, Zuniga finds Carmen alone. He attacks her and tries to rape her, but José comes to save her and shoots Zuniga.
Micaela visits José in prison bringing him the sad news that his mother has passed away. In his sadness he tells Micaela to marry another and sends her away. Daydream- ing his prison time away, José is imagining a perfect version of his Carmen.
A square in Seville outside the arena, shortly before the bullfight. Escamillo enters with his large entourage and Carmen at his side. Don José is out of prison and looking for her, hiding in the crowd. All enter the arena, Carmen remains behind with José.
She refuses to go back to him, she wants to keep her freedom and not be bound to obey anybody. José’s jealousy drives him crazy and he stabs Carmen as Escamillo‘s victory is being celebrated in the arena. He collapses over her body in despair.

Synopsis

ACT I

SCENE ONE – The Slave Market
The slave trader Lankendem displays his “merchandise” to the highest bidder. The visit of the wealthy Seyd Pasha puts the slave market in turmoil. The shrewd Lankendem presents the Pasha with the most attractive slave girls, but none of them meet his taste. Then he shows him the attractive Gulnare, who he has just captured earlier on. The Pasha, enchanted by her beauty, buys her immediately and throws a bag of gold to Lankendem who rejoices. But the slave trader has saved his greatest “spoil” for last, he suddenly shows off the beautiful Medora. The Pasha is immediately captured by her beauty.
There is a group of men lingering in the square. Its leader, Conrad, the Corsair, notices Me- dora and he is immediately spellbound by her beauty. Thanks to his immense wealth, the Pasha buys Medora and carries her off to his harem. He has no suspicion of the Corsairs’ plan. Indeed, Conrad, helped by his friend Birbanto, kidnaps the young girl right in front of the furious Pasha. In the general confusion that follows, the other girl slaves are freed, and, before the arrival of the Turkish soldiers, the Corsairs manage to capture Lankendem and quickly flee to a cave by the sea.

ACT I

SCENE TWO – The Corsair’s Cave
Conrad and the Corsairs return to their cave. They are very pleased with their own bravery which allowed them not only to take the girls away from Lankendem’s hands, but to have stolen a treasure. The slave girls ask Medora to intercede on their behalf so that Conrad may set them free. He accepts, but Birbanto and some of the Corsairs, who hope to make money out of them, protest vehemently against such decision. A violent discussion breaks out, but Conrad keeps his word and the girls are declared free from slavery. Conrad and Medora, self-assured and alone, bask in their new found love. Lankendem, meanwhile, tied up in ropes, silently witnessed the discussion between the Corsairs. He approaches Birbanto and his group by offering him a secret deal. If they release him, he will reveal them a sure way to prevail over Conrad: the Corsairs accept. He tells them that he has a potion with a very strong narcotic effect, which once is sprinkled on flowers and inhaled it is highly effective… In the meantime, the lovers return happily from their moment of shared joy. Conrad, wanting to offer proof of his love to Medora and seal it, takes a flower, smells its scent, but before offering it to her… he falls into a deep sleep.
The group of the rebel Corsairs surrounds Medora, who is terrified and realises she has fallen into a trap. The Corsairs let Lankendem escape with Medora. Birbanto is about to kill Conrad who suddenly wakes up. Desperate, for the loss of Medora, he sets out on his quest swearing to save her once again from the hands of Lankendem.

ACT II

SCENE ONE – The Harem of Seyd Pasha
Finally Gulnare enjoys her new life, refusing to bend to the rules of the harem and challenging the Pasha himself: her capriciousness is full of charm, so she manages to avoid any punish- ment. No other woman in the harem dares behave like her in the presence of the Pasha. A big party is being prepared in the harem, when suddenly Lankendem arrives with Medora. The Pasha is once again captivated by the beauty of the slave and to thank the slave trader for his service, he gives him a lavish reward.
Happy to have back in his harem the two most beautiful girls slaves, the Pasha, while smoking, falls asleep. In his dreams he reaches the Jardin animé, where all the women of his harem dance around him in harmony. Suddenly he wakes up: the Corsairs have invaded the palace during his sleep and are running away with the slaves.

ACT II

SCENE TWO – The Return to the Cave
Conrad and his friends return to theirs cave. Here they celebrate Medora and Conrad’s reunion. After the celebrations, they leave for the port where the Corsairs had previously prepared a ship. They all start a new journey towards happiness and new adventures.

EPILOGUE

The Corsair Ship
The Corsair ship takes off. Suddenly a storm breaks out. On a beach Medora and Conrad are the only two survivors of the shipwreck.
