Penny Woolcock's mesmerising production of Bizet's The Pearl Fishers returns to ENO this evening (Monday 16 June).
This popular opera tells a compelling tale of friendship tested by love, exploring themes of desire and rejection, longing and loss, and living within religious strictures. With stunning underwater sequences and a beautifully realised shanty town setting, this admired production provides the perfect backdrop for Bizet’s memorable melodies, colourful orchestration and evocative choruses.
