This is the first time that The St. Petersburg Chamber Opera turns to works by Georges Bizet. However, instead of staging the world-famous "Carmen", the company chose lesser-known but no less brilliant "Les pêcheurs de perles". "Les pêcheurs de perles" was the first opera commissioned to the young composer by Theatre Lyrique, the main theater of the French capital in the middle of the 19th century. It took Bizet only a few months to write the opera. After the premiere Hector Berlioz wrote that the score of the opera "contains a lot of fine expressive moments, full of fire and rich color". "Les pêcheurs de perles" fascinates the audience with its melodic richness and dramatic expressiveness. It is these properties of the musical score, as well as passion for staging opera rarities that attracted the director Yuri Alexandrov, known for his extraordinary interpretations of opera stories.
