Opera North - The Pearl Fishers


This new concert staging by Opera North of the opera in which Bizet found his distinctive voice as a composer is conducted by Matthew Kofi Waldren (Don GiovanniLa bohème) and directed by Matthew Eberhardt (Trouble in TahitiStreet Scene).

A love triangle set against the backdrop of ancient Ceylon, The Pearl Fishers was part of a craze for an imagined Eastern exoticism in mid to late 19th century Europe. It tells the story of two men, Nadir and Zurga, whose vow of friendship founders on their love for the same woman, the priestess Léïla.

Whilst the plot may be riddled with improbable coincidences, the music brims with lyric beauty, imaginative orchestration, magnificent choruses and gorgeous melodies, nowhere more so than in what is perhaps the best-loved tenor/baritone duet in all opera, ‘Au fond du temple saint’.
