The Carmen Fantasy, Op. 25, by Pablo de Sarasate is a violin fantasy on themes from the opera Carmen by Georges Bizet. A version with piano accompaniment was published in 1882.

The Carmen Fantasy is one of Sarasate's most well known works and is often performed in violin competitions. It was dedicated to Joseph Hellmesberger. Because of its delicate techniques and sanguineous passion inspired by the opera, it is considered to be one of the most challenging and technically demanding pieces for the violin.

The piece contains an adaptation of the “Aragonaise”, “Habanera”, an interlude, “Seguidilla”, and the “Gypsy Dance”. A performance takes approximately 12 minutes.
