The Pearl Fishers 

When: Fri., Jan. 26, 7:30 p.m. and Sun., Jan. 28, 3 p.m. 2018
Price: $35-$55
Georges Bizet's early opera Les pêcheurs de perles, or The Pearl Fishers, was initially not a great success. Bizet was only 25 when the opera premiered, and it was never revived in his lifetime. (He later composed Carmen, so it wasn't the end of the road for Georges.) Later audiences found much to like in the exotic tale of two Indian pearl fishers who fall in love with the same priestess, Leïla, yet promise to forget her and remain friends. But neither Zurga nor Nadir can forget Leïla, and Zurga has in fact pursued her to the pearl-fisher camp. When she appears, old passions are rekindled and a once-strong friendship is in peril. Winter Opera St. Louis presents Bizet's The Pearl Fishers in French with English supertitles at 7:30 p.m. Friday and 3 p.m. Sunday (January 26 and 28) at the Skip Viragh Center for the Arts (425 Lindbergh Boulevard; Tickets are $35 to $55.
