In Les Pêcheurs de Perles, soprano Diana Damrau stars as Leïla, the beautiful priestess pursued by rival pearl divers competing for her affection. Tenor Matthew Polenzani and baritone Mariusz Kwiecien are her suitors, who sing the rapturous duet “Au fond du temple saint,” adored by opera fans worldwide. Director Penny Woolcock explores enduring themes of love, betrayal, and vengeance in a production that vividly depicts the mystical wonder of Southeast Asia., and conductor Gianandrea Noseda breathes new life in to Bizet’s lush score.
