Opera Synopsis: 
Can anything possibly surpass a midsummer night at the Santa Fe Opera? How about being simultaneously transported to tropical shores on waves of dreamy melody? Bizet’s first stage success is set in ancient times on the shores of Ceylon, where Zurga, ruler of the pearl fishers, is reunited with his long-lost comrade Nadir. Their friendship duet, which recounts a mutual passion for the heavenly Leïla, is the epitome of bromance in music. Both men renounced her to save their friendship, but her unexpected return soon traps them again in the snares of love, and now they must make a choice.

Conductor Timothy Myers and director Shawna Lucey lead this revival of our stunning 2012 production, which was called “The best of this summer’s season,” by The Wall Street Journal, “True to the letter and the spirit of the work,” by the Chicago Tribune, and “An unqualified success,” by the Denver Post.

Experience the power of friendship.
