Movement 1, "Prelude" is from the original's "Prelude to Act I," setting up the mood of the townspeople milling around the square in Seville. With Spanish exoticism permeating the atmosphere, Carmen is introduced and begins to exhibit the flair that makes her so appealing to men.

Movement 2, "Intermezzo" is from the original's "Prelude to Act III," the music more sinister and dark, allowing the percussion to explore the more ominous sound effects available.

In Movement 3, "March of the Toreadors/Allegro Moderato," perhaps the most famed of the melodies, euphoric and vivacious, comes to the fore as the bullfighter in the storyline is celebrated. While you certainly don't have to take a literal approach to this show, this would be a great spot to do some work with a bullfighter's cape.

Movement 4, "Finale" is from the end of the opera, where a jilted lover kills Carmen and the famed bells theme peals out, mourning the loss of the title character.
