GEORGES BIZET'S Les Pecheurs de Perles - aka The Pearl Fishers - featuring one of opera's best known and loved duets, 'Au Fond Du Temple Saint', will be performed in New York's Metropolitan Opera.
Galway audiences will have a chance to see this great work when it is broadcast live to The Eye Cinema, Wellpark, this Saturday at 6pm. An opera of lust and longing set in Shri Lanka, it stars soprano Diana Damrau as Leïla, a beautiful Hindu priestess pursued by rival pearl divers, played by tenor Matthew Polenzani and baritone Mariusz Kwiecien. Directed by Penny Woolcock, the opera explores themes of pure love, betrayal, and vengeance. The conductor is Gianandrea Noseda.
