"This Pearl Fishers is a real gem, as fiery and fervid as any of the more familiar tales of forbidden love, jealousy, and vengeance." — Huffington Post

Bizet's gorgeous opera of lust and longing in the Far East is coming to ASHK. 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. Director Penny Woolcock creates a graceful and sensitive new production. Conductor Gianandrea Noseda brings his romantic flair to the lush score.
