An English lieutenant chances on the daughter of a Brahmin priest as she gathers flowers by the water. They should not, they must not, but they cannot help themselves. It is love at first sight. How long can their love survive when they come from such different worlds?
Experience the exotic flora, ritual dances and forbidden love in Delibes' Eastern fantasy, Lakmé, starring coloratura songbird Emma Matthews.
The production is a masterpiece of scenic art, inspired by traditional Hindu painting. For all its gaudy detail and vibrant costumes, however, nothing in this production outdazzles the music, which includes the heavenly ‘Flower duet’ and one of the ultimate star turns of the coloratura repertoire, the famous ‘Bell Song’.
