“The Pearl Fishers (in French Les pêcheurs de perles) is an opera in three acts by the composer Georges Bizet. First performed in 1863, The Pearl Fishers is set in ancient times on the island of Ceylon and describes a moving tale of friendship tested by love. The famous friendship duet (‘Au fond du temple saint’), performed by two of the central characters Zurga and Nadir, is one of opera’s most famous and instantly recognisable arias.”
Dinner and a Diva: Les pêcheurs de perles is sponsored by Boni Wendel.
