This other great title by the composer of Carmen takes us from ancient Sri Lanka to a 21st-century reality show while encapsulating the fascination of the Far East. It returns to the Liceu in a brilliant production by the young stage director Lotte de Beer.

Les pêcheurs de perles centers on a love triangle in a religious setting. This version makes an unquestionably modern reinterpretation of the plot while respecting the inherent subtext. The chorus is always present, symbolizing the transition from tolerance to violence in the ethereal atmosphere conjured up by George Bizet's distinctive and delicate yet exuberant score.
