The bullfight begins with Act 1, the "picador's scene". Riding on horseback, the picador stabs the bull in its back with a spear so as to weaken the bull.

A bullfight lasts from Act 1 to Act 3. In Act 1 and 2, assistant bullfighters, a picador and a banderillero, fight in place of the main bullfighter, the matador.

The main star of a bullfight is the matador who appears at the end of Act 3. The matador (or the "killer") reappears in Act 3 and takes the bull's life.
