Two International Opera Stars Come Together for One Stunning Performance
Bold and beautiful, Wortham Theater Center is a masterful, creative playground for performing artists and offers an array of public spaces, both monumental and intimate. On January 27th, Wortham Theater Center will present The Pearl Fishers.
A rarely performed gem of the opera world, The Pearl Fishers, is noted for its extraordinary musical beauty. Composed 12 years before Bizet's masterwork Carmen, this opera tells the story of two best friends and the bond that is interrupted by the arrival of a priestess to bless the pearl harvest. This romantic love triangle between the best friends and the priestess lead to dramatic consequences.
International stars Mariusz Kwiecień and Lawrence Brownlee lead the cast and come together to perform The Pearl Fishers duet, widely recognized as one of the most beautiful and famous duets in opera. The colorful, eye-popping production designed by Zandra Rhodes will transport you to a fantasy-inspired version of the island of Ceylon.
Plan ahead and make the most of your night at the Opera! Savor fine dining at the Wortham Theater Center or nearby in the Theater District. Shop for treasures at the HGO Guild boutique. Enjoy a pre-performance meal or an intermission snack or dessert in the Grand Foyer at the Wortham Theater Center. You can pre-order intermission fare by stopping by the Encore Cafe before the performance. From parking to the closing curtain, we hope you'll enjoy every moment of your experience at Houston Grand Opera.
