The Death Card has revealed to Carmen that she will die at the hands of one of her lovers. She is attracted to Jose, an intense young soldier, who, though betrothed to Micaela, quickly falls victim to her wiles. But Carmen's loves are short-lived, and when Escamillo casts an eye on her, Jose, in a jealous rage, rushes at him threateningly, inadvertently killing Captain Zuniga, who had interfered to protect Escamillo.
In prison, Jose is tortured by visions of his past life. Micaela is thrust out of his mind by the siren Carmen, who drives him to frenzy when he imagines her in the arms of her lover, Escamillo. He stabs wildly at a phantom Carmen.
Jose escapes from prison. He follows Carmen to the bullring where she has gone to meet his rival, Escamillo. Though her friends Mercedes and Frasquita have warned her of Jose's presence and dangerous mood, she prefers to face him, and flaunts her new love at him. She dies, choked by the same scarf she had once given him as a token of her love.

Some Viennese students, returning at dawn from an all-night revel with their young ladies, raid a costume shop. They spy Dr. Falke, the noted Ballmaster, with two girls on his arms, and Gabriel von Eisenstein, their ring-leader, incites them to dress up Falke in a bat-costume, and then to leave him dangling helplessly from a lamp-post. When later Falke is released by his girl-friends, he plans a fitting revenge on his friend Eisenstein.
In Frau Eisenstein's boudoir, her maid, Adele, bemoans the fact that, although she has been invited to a masked ball, she cannot go because she has "nothing to wear." Otto, the valet, in love with Adele, suggests borrowing Frau Eisenstein's dress, which he is ironing. Frau Eisenstein, whose name is Rosalinda, enters, followed by her husband. He is in a gay mood and, while making extravagant love to his wife, he also flirts outrageously with Adele. Dr. Falke comes to call, to invite Eisenstein to the ball, suggesting that he take Adele along as his partner. While these two slip away to dress, Falke calls in Frau Eisenstein and Otto, and hurriedly hides them behind a screen. Enraged by what they have overseen, Frau Eisenstein and Otto decide to attend the ball in masked disguise as a Hungarian Count and Countess.
At the ball Eisenstein is infatuated with the mysterious Countess, never dreaming that he is making love to his own wife, and Adele, likewise, flirts unknowingly with her dis?guised fiance, Otto. When the gaiety is at its height, Falke suddenly appears dressed as a Bat. As the chimes sound midnight, he unmasks Rosalinda, to Eisenstein's utter embarrass?ment. He then unmasks Otto, to Adele's consternation. Now Doctor Bat has had his revenge. All are forgiven, and deceived and deceivers dance happily together, as the curtain falls.
