Les Pêcheurs de Perles (The Pearl Fishers)

Live

Celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Metropolitan Opera’s Peabody and Emmy Award-winning series The Met: Live in HD. The broadcast of Bizet’s Les Pêcheurs de Perles (The Pearl Fishers) will be presented live on Saturday, January 16 at 12:55 p.m. ET / 9:55 a.m. PT, followed by an encore presentation in select cinemas on Wednesday, January 20 at 6:30 p.m. in all time zones. 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,” which opera fans know and adore. Director Penny Woolcock explores the timeless themes of pure love, betrayal, and vengeance as Conductor Gianandrea Noseda brings his romantic flair to the lush score from the composer of Carmen.
