Carmen Jones- -
Powered by George Bizet's grand music and Oscar Hammerstein II's magnificent lyrics, this Americanized all-black version of the classic opera Carmen is "a dynamic...superb show" with a positively "incandescent Carmen." (Newsweek) Oscar® nominee Dorothy Dandridge stars in the title role, a passionate, sexy creature who lures Joe (Harry Belafonte) a handsome solider, away from his sweetheart (Olga James). Following a fatal brawl with his sergeant, Joe deserts his regiment with the sultry femme fatale. But Carmen soon tires of him and take up with a heavyweight prize-fighter (Joe Adams), triggering Joe's tragic revenge.
