About Carmen Jones:

Set in the South as World War II rages overseas, Carmen Jones tells the story of a tempestuous parachute factory worker who ignites her own battle in a tragic love triangle with an airman and a prizefighter. Adapted from Bizet’s legendary opera Carmen, Oscar Hammerstein II shifted the story from Spain to World War II America, featuring an all African-American cast.
