[[IThoughtItMeant Not to be confused with]] [[Franchise/CarmenSandiego the world's greatest thief,]] though that Carmen does share a few similarities with this one and has had the opera factor into her CriminalMindGames a couple of times.



* BadassBaritone: Escamillo, a classic example

** A subverted male version in Don José and Escamillo for Carmen. Escamillo ''seems'' like the Veronica, due to his dangerous and exciting profession, but it turns out Don José is the truly violent one.

* SurprisinglySimilarStories: A gypsy girl seduces a young man who leaves his life behind to be by her side. Some time later, she falls in love with another guy, claiming herself to value freedom most of all. The spurned man goes crazy and kills her. Sounds familiar? Actually it's the plot of AlexanderPushkin's poem ''The Gypsies'', written 21 years before Merimet's novella.
