Jeunesses Musicales Canada (JM Canada), in collaboration with the Centre de créativité du Gesù, presents Georges Bizet’s Les Pêcheurs de perles  (The Pearl Fishers) on Tuesday, October 19, 2021, at 8 p.m.

Rarely performed, Bizet’s first operatic work, which he wrote at the age of 25, is a tragic tale of betrayed friendship, impossible love and sacrificial rituals told through one of the most beautiful duets of French opera “Au fond du temple saint,”. The fishermen Zurga and Nadir and the object of their desire, the priestess Leïla, form a love triangle, bound by an oath that is doomed to failure. The island of Ceylon, at the crossroads of India and Asia, is the setting of this tragic story.

Stage director: Alain Gauthier; Musical director: Esther Gonthier.
