The Pearl Fishers, Coliseum, London

By Andrew Clements [The Guardian, 2 June 2010]

If it did not include one of the most popular of all operatic lollipops - the tenor-and-baritone duet Au Fond du Temple Saint - surely no one would bother too much with The Pearl Fishers. It would be consigned to semi-obscurity, along with Bizet’s other lesser known stage works such as Ivan IV and La Jolie Fille de Perth (a far more convincing piece dramatically), leaving Carmen the only regular in the repertory.
