The Met: Les Pêcheurs de Perles

January 16, 2016, 12:55 PM

$15

Les Pêcheurs de Perles (“The Pearl Fishermen”), Bizet’s gorgeous opera of lust and longing set in the Far East, returns to the Met stage for the first time in 100 years. Soprano Diana Damrau stars as Leïla, the beautiful Hindu priestess pursued by rival pearl divers competing for her hand. Her suitors are tenor Matthew Polenzani and baritone Mariusz Kwiecien, who sing the lilting duet “Au fond du temple saint” (“At the base of the holy temple”), which opera fans know and adore. Director Penny Woolcock explores the timeless themes of pure love, betrayal, and vengeance in a production that vividly creates an undersea world on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera of New York. Conductor Gianandrea Noseda brings his romantic flair to the lush score from the composer of Carmen.

Live High-Definition Broadcast.

Tickets: $20 Adults, $18 Seniors, $15 Students.
