Carmen fantasy redux #MusicMonday

For this week's #MusicMonday, I present this scene Tabacalera from Carlos Saura's film adaptation of the Carmen story, recast in a flamenco dance studio:

This scene is set in the tobacco factory where Carmen works (and gets into a tussle with another factory worker).

I love the ballet tops and whoosh of the skirts.

Carlos Saura's film was released in 1983, and complements Francesco Rosi's adaptation of Bizet's Carmen, which released in 1984.  In addition to featuring Georges Bizet's music, Carlos Saura's film also features flamenco music performed by renown flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucia.
