Tulsa Opera Presents Georges Bizet's "The Pearl Fishers"
On this installment of ST, we learn about an exciting new production of Bizet's "The Pearl Fishers," which Tulsa Opera will present at the Tulsa PAC on both Friday (the 21st) and Sunday (the 23rd). As noted of this production at the Tulsa Opera website: "Georges Bizet's sensual tale of forbidden love and the bonds of true friendship is musical ambrosia. Tuneful and exotic, 'The Pearl Fishers' centers on an unusual love triangle in which two men, Nadir and Zurga, compete for the same woman but are also loyal friends. They sing of their bond with each other and their love for Leila in one of the most exquisite duets in the operatic repertoire, 'Au fond du temple saint.'" Our guests are two well-known figures on the American opera scene who have just recently joined the Tulsa Opera team; Greg Weber is the organization's General Director and Tobias Picker is its Artistic Director. Both are excited about this new staging of "The Pearl Fishers" and have much to tell us about it.
