Please contact our box office at (505) 988-1234 for availability information.

The Lensic & The Santa Fe Opera present The Met: Live in HD – Les Pecheurs de Perles (Bizet).

For the first time since Enrico Caruso starred in the opera in 1916, the Met will present Bizet’s lush, melodic romance Les Pêcheurs de Perles (The Pearl Fishers), in a production by director Penny Woolcock, who made her Met debut staging John Adams’s Doctor Atomic.

Gianandrea Noseda conducts a cast led by Diana Damrau as the beautiful priestess Leïla. Matthew Polenzani and Mariusz Kwiecien sing the roles of Nadir and Zurga, the two pearl fishers whose friendship is tested by their rivalry for Leïla’s affections; their “Au fond du temple saint” is one of the best-known duets in opera. Nicolas Testè sings the high priest Nourabad in the new production, which will have its premiere on New Year’s Eve.

Estimated run time is 2 hours, 54 minutes.

Tickets: $22-$28

The Lensic thanks the Eldorado Hotel for their generous support of our great theater and The Met: Live in HD season.
