A community of pearl-divers is living a precarious existence on the treacherous sea-shore, but now it's thrown into turmoil by the arrival of the beautiful singer Leila, whose role is to propitiate the gods while the fishers go about their business.
The life-long friendship between Nadir and Zurga has survived everything that life can throw at them, but can it survive Leila?
Bizet's early masterpiece "The Pearl Fishers" has many memorable moments, especially its ever-popular friendship duet.
Claudia Boyle is an Irish soprano who has performed in many of the world’s most prestigious opera houses including the Komische Oper Berlin, Teatro dell’Opera di Roma and Semperoper Dresden.
