One of Bizet’s early masterpieces returns to the London Coliseum with Penny Woolcock’s spectacular production which is set in a Sri Lankan shanty town.
The story centres around the life-long friendship of Nadir and Zurga who live a precarious lifestyle on the coast. The arrival of Leïla tests the friendship to the limits and explores the themes of sacrifice and love.
The ever popular opera is full of colourful orchestration, wonderful choruses and beautiful melodies, including its much-loved friendship duet.
Conductor Roland Böer leads a cast that includes Claudia Boyle as Leïla, tenor Robert McPherson as Nadir and baritone Jacques Imbrailo as Zurga.
Sung in English, with surtitles projected above the stage
Running time includes one interval of approximately 20 minutes.
