THE PEARL FISHERS

FESTIVAL THEATRE 

11-18 SEPTEMBER 2010

The Pearl Fishers  is based around a love triangle between the three main characters- Zurga, Nadir and Léïla. In the original text it is clear that Léïla is the object of both men’s affections. The exact nature of the relationship between Zurga and Nadir is left unclear, however, though the language used sometimes hints at something more than friendship.

REVIEWS

The balance between the three excellent performances adds up to a very even production that works at every level
