Take a dive into the forbidden with Georges Bizet's exotic feast for the eyes and ears, The Pearl Fishers. Set in ancient times on the island of Ceylon, the 1863 opera centers around two longtime mates whose friendship is put to the test when they both fall in love with a beautiful virgin priestess, igniting a fiery love triangle. Secrets and lives hang in the balance as jealousy wars with fraternal loyalty in this enchanting early opera from Bizet (Carmen) that includes the famous duet "Au fond du temple saint," one of the best-known songs in Western opera. This production features award-winning soprano Hailey Clark as the priestess Leila, America's Got Talent finalist Sean Panikkar as Nadir and acclaimed baritone Lee Poulis as Zurga, and is presented in French with English and Spanish supertitles.

About the Ticket Supplier: MBS ProductionsMBS Productions specializes in "new theater." In essence, every play or musical they do is a world premier. They are the only theatrical production company in North Texas that specializes exclusively in producing previously unseen works for the stage. They deem their audience to be the most adventurous, sophisticated, and eager, for they know that they'll get to experience these new works.
MBS Productions was founded in 2004 by Mark-Brian Sonna when he produced the show, "Theatre of Death," which was presented at the Teatro Dallas space for the Halloween season. The show consisted of six short plays dating from the middle ages through the present day, all dealing with death. Two of the plays were world premiers, three were new translations, and one was an adaptation of an existing work. This set the tone for what was to come. In 2005, they did a second show of "Theatre of Death" to kick off a 3-show season that carried them through the summer of 2006. In their 2006/2007 season, they presented five plays. They currently produce six shows a year, as well as assist and serve as consultants to other theater companies in developing and producing new and existing plays for their audiences.
