The Pearl Fishers conducted by Plácido Domingo

Plácido Domingo conducts the “Pearl Fishers,” an opera by Georges Bizet, at the Los Angeles Opera.

The detailed staging, complete with stunning special effects, brings a rare and exotic story to life. Soprano Nino Machaidze, one of LA Opera’s favorite leading ladies, returns as a veiled priestess with a hidden past, pursued by two lifelong friends and romantic rivals. The complicated triangle pushes forbidden love into a final struggle for life and death, until a nearly forgotten secret saves the day.
