Les pêcheurs de perles (Pearl fishers) is an opera in three acts by the composer Georges Bizet.
First performed in 1863, The Pearl Fishers is set in ancient times on the island of Ceylon and describes a moving tale of friendship tested by love.
Lotte de Beer’s staging however transports us to a reality tv show set on a tropical Island, which brings out both the absurdism and human drama of Bizet’s opera.
