The Pearlfishers

May 25, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - June 3, 2017 @ 11:00 pm

$54 – $150

Australia’s prima diva Emma Matthews will thrill Brisbane audiences when she graces the stage of the Lyric Theatre, QPAC in Bizet’s classic opera The Pearlfishers, presented by Opera Queensland for a two-week season from 25 May to 3 June 2017.

The Pearlfishers story takes place during the pearl diving season in colonial Ceylon, where old friends Zurga and Nadir reminisce about Léïla, a woman they both loved and who re-enters their lives when racketeer Nourabad brings a beautiful priestess to bless the fishermen.

The multi award-winning soprano reprises the role of Léïla, after critically acclaimed performances in the Opera Australia and West Australian Opera.
