* 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.

* BecauseDestinySaysSo: The cards say that Carmen and Jose will die, so she feels there's nothing she can do to prevent it.

** Musically, the part at the end of the overture gives a strong sense that, while you're in for a good time, it won't end well. Whenever that motif pops up again in the score, you know there's unpleasantness ahead (e.g. when Carmen gives Jose the flower; when he comes back and sings to her about how he kept it the whole time he was in prison).
