Bizet: Les Pêcheurs de Perles

Bizet: Les Pêcheurs de Perles


Annick Massis (soprano), Yasu Nakajima (tenor), Luca Grassi (baritone) & Luigi De Donato (bass)

Orchestra e Coro del Teatro La Fenice di Venezia, Marcello Viotti (conductor) & Pier Luigi Pizzi (director & set and costume designer)

Les pêcheurs de perles dates from 1863 and represents much more than a mere operatic exercise written by a twenty-five-year-old composer. Pêcheurs is, as a matter of fact, the only other Bizet opera, beside Carmen, to have remained in the repertoire. This opera contains memorable passages, which have ensured its long-lasting success and which many great singers (beginning with Caruso) have recorded and performed: for example the aria of Nadir Je crois entendre encore; the beautiful aria of Léïla Comme autrefois, dans la nuit sombre and, above all, the superb duet between Léïla and Nadir Ton cour n’a pas compris le mien.

This Venetian production features an extraordinary Annick Massis as Léïla and the refined staging of Pier Luigi Pizzi.
