Charlie Chaplin's Burlesque on Carmen

So yoiu can appreciate Bizet'sr Carmen at the Royal Opera House, here's Charlie Chaplin's 1915 take, Burlesque on Carmen.  Because it's a vehicle for the Little Tramp, the star is Charlie's Don José and his merry dealings with Lilas Pastia. And the men dressed up as a mule! Edna Purviance's Carmen doesn't get much to do except repeat her usual role in Chaplin films.
