Syracuse Opera - Downtown: $25 for One Ticket to Syracuse Opera's Production of "The Pearl Fishers" ($47 Value)

Much like human history, opera is epic in scale, full of murders and romantic intrigue, and frequently interrupted by deformed men in half masks and capes. Get in on the grandeur with today's Groupon: for $25, you get one section E ticket to see Syracuse Opera's production of The Pearl Fishers on Friday, April 8 at 8 p.m. at the John H. Mulroy Civic Center (a $47 value).

The local premiere of The Pearl Fishers marks the finale of Syracuse Opera's year-round season of professionally staged operas. Georges Bizet's second most renowned opera—behind the operatic masterwork Carmen—chronicles the melodramatic dissolution of a close friendship between two pearl fishers, Zurga and Nadir. During the famed first-act duet, "Au fond du temple saint," the tenor and baritone fishermen croon of their faithful bond, but the surprise arrival of the soprano-throated femme fatale, Leila, incites the unraveling of their camaraderie as the three impassioned acts unfold. The opera’s sung in French, but spectators who can’t hear in French can use the English supertitles to follow the action to its blazing climax, which contains no spoilers.

Reviews

The Post-Standard mentioned Syracuse Opera and its upcoming presentation of The Pearl Fishers. Past performances by Syracuse Opera have been featured in the Post-Standard and Watertown Daily Times.

  • The friendship of Zurga, leader of the pearl fishers, and Nadir is unintentionally torn asunder by a virgin priestess, Leila. She also shares a past with both men. Set in Ceylon in ancient times. Sung in French with projected English translation. A Syracuse premiere. – Melinda Johnson, Post-Standard
  • Syracuse Opera produces all its season's shows, which means that rehearsals are all in Syracuse and casting is done by the opera company rather than utilizing a touring group. – Gabrielle Hovendon, Watertown Daily Times
