Bizet’s exotic tale of love, friendship and betrayal returns to Sydney.
This year's staging has a fresh cast of Opera Australia's young stars - Andrew Jones, Henry Choo, Nicole Car and Jud Arthur - with French conductor Guillaume Tourniaire.
This much-loved production, created by Ann-Margret Pettersson with designs by John Conklin, is as captivating as ever – a stunning confection of masks and veils, fire and water, gold and silver.
Meanwhile, Bizet’s music, full of soaring melodies and atmospheric vocal ensembles, continues to top the operatic charts with the showstopping duet ‘Au fond du temple saint’ (‘In the depths of the temple’).
So join Zurga and Nadir on the shores of the Indian Ocean. Hear their solemn vow. See their friendship tested by their passion for Léïla. And revel in the music, the drama, the glorious trappings of a beautiful tale well told.
