Experience an exotic tale of jealousy and temptation in Bizet’s The Pearlfishers.
It’s pearl diving season in colonial Ceylon. Old friends Zurga and Nadir reminisce of a woman they both loved but who Nadir secretly pursued years ago. When the racketeer Nourabad brings a beautiful priestess to bless the fishermen, Nadir instantly recognises her – it’s Léïla, the object of his obsession. The pair meet in secret, but know their love is perilous in the face of Zurga’s jealousy and Nourabad’s fanaticism. Can the bonds of friendship withstand love’s temptation?
Step into an exotic world of forbidden romance with a star-filled cast led by Australia’s prima diva, Emma Matthews, tenor Aldo Di Toro, baritone Grant Doyle (making his Opera Queensland debut) and bass Andrew Collis.
