If you love me, Carmen, if you love me,
you can soon be proud of me! If you love me… if you love me! Ah! I love you, Escamillo, I love you and I swear on my life,
that I never loved someone more than you! Ah! I love you!… yes, I love you! Make way! Make way for lord Alcade! Carmen, some good advice… don’t stay here.
– Why, if I may ask? He is here.
– Who? Him!… Don José! He is hiding in the crowd,… look… Yes, I see him. Be careful! I’m not a woman who will tremble before him. I’ll wait for him… and talk to him. Carmen,… believe me,… be careful!
– I fear nothing! Be careful!
