Met Opera LIVE: Bizet's LES PECHEURS DE PERLES - New Production

Broadcast LIVE from New York!

Bizet’s gorgeous opera of lust and longing in the Far East returns to the Met 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 famous duet “Au fond du temple saint”. 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 Met. Conductor Gianandrea Noseda brings his romantic flair to the lush score.

Approximate running time: 2 hours 55 min.
