Toreador Song

The ‘Toreador Song’ is one of the most famous arias from the opera Carmen. It is sung by the bullfighter Escamillo and describes various situations in the bullring, the cheering of the crowds and the fame that comes with victory. The opera is set in Spain but originally sung in French.
