I had only heard this opera on CD and enjoyed it very much. I had not seen any DVD's until now so was pleased to purchase this one. The main singers were very good infact I would rate the female lead as outstanding. I found the male tenor had an incredible voice but not very powerful at times when singing with other members of the cast. For me the leading baritone was the star of the opera and the orchestra deserves a special mention. Not my favourite but very good.

I bought the DVD really to 'learn' the opera...instead of just knowing a couple of the popular arias. Unfortunately this is the only DVD offering I could find available. I'm not sorry I purchased it but my main criticism is that the sound pick up from different parts of the stage is very uneven and poor quality.

I think this opera, which is set in what was then called Ceylon and now known as Sri Lanka, must be staged in a the Tamil region of the country because the characters in it are portrayed as followers of Hinduism and not Buddhism, which is the religion of the majority Singhalese population of Sri Lanka. We also need to bear in mind that it wasn't necessary for Bizet to know an awful about either of these religions, or about the ethnic groups that embrace them, for his work to succeed, which it certainly has, although not nearly as much as his more famous work, Carmen.

In actual fact, this is an opera cum ballet with the dancing choreographed by Gheorghe Iancu. The prima ballerina is Leitizia Giuliani and lead male dancer Gheorghe Iancu with corps de ballet of four dancers. I would imagine that the choreography is designed to imitate the type of dancing that would have been performed by Sri Lanka Tamils, although I wouldn't imagine Bizet and his helpers would have been too bothered about cultural accuracy in this respect as neither need the viewer be in assessing the success of this work. As it stands, much of its perceptive elegance is rooted in the synchronisation of dancing and singing, which envelop the audience in a sea of inspirational choreographed and vocalised delight. There's a distinct relationship between voice and body movements.

Leila has been chosen by the pearl fishers as their virgin princess of the sea. Nourabad, the high priest, leads a ceremony during which Leila takes the veil, promises to remain chaste and to banish evil spirits. Nadir, a hunter, and Zurga, elected head of the pearl fishers, are firm friends who have mutually agreed not to have anything to do with a mysterious veiled women with whom they've both become infatuated.

to my knowlewdge, this is the only DVD of this opera available. Annick Massis is wonderful. I understand why Nadir and Zurga fell in love with her.
