This event has now passed.

Set in the faraway island paradise of Ceylon (Sri Lanka), Les pêcheurs de perles (The Pearl Fishers) tells the story of a love triangle complicated by true friendship. Zurga and Nadir are old friends, but in the past were nearly driven apart by their mutual love for Leïla, a priestess of Brahma sworn to chastity. The two men swore to renounce their love for the beautiful young woman, but neither this promise nor Leïla’s vow of chastity prevents her and Nadir from being overcome by longing when their paths cross again.
