The Carmen Suites are two suites of orchestral music drawn from the music of Georges Bizet's 1875 opera Carmen and compiled posthumously by his friend Ernest Guiraud. They adhere very closely to Bizet's orchestration.

Suite no 1 is made up of the following works:
No. 1. Prélude – Act I, prelude (fate motive)
No. 1a. Aragonaise – Interlude (entr'acte) before act 4
No.2. Intermezzo – Interlude (entr'acte) before act 3
No. 3. Séguedille – Act 1, Carmen: "Près des remparts de Séville"
No. 4. Les Dragons d'Alcala – Interlude (entr'acte) before act 2
No. 5. Les Toréadors – Theme from prelude to act 1 and Procession of the Toreadors from act 4: "Les voici! voici la quadrille des Toreros!".
