The opera was beautiful in every way----superb voices, exquisite sets, beautiful costumes and, lest we not forget, music by a master.
A perfect evening.

More Information


Join Washington National Opera for Georges Bizet’s exotic feast for the eyes and ears. The prayers of the virgin priestess Leïla (Norah Amsellem) protect the fishermen of ancient Ceylon until Chief Zurga (Trevor Scheunemann) jealously condemns her and Nadir (Charles Castronovo) to death. When Zurga realizes that Leïla is the woman who once saved his life, he makes the ultimate sacrifice for their freedom and happiness. Acclaimed Italian conductor Giuseppe Grazioli makes his WNO debut.

In French with English supertitles.
