The Bullfight Scene from Carmen
In the final stage of a bullfight – when matador and bull face each other alone in the ring – their interactions resemble a dance. So, the dancing in Carmen is reminiscent of the dangerous dance between bull and matador. (Fate, too, plays a part in the opera and in the bullring. Carmen, like the bull, must be sacrificed.)
