Florida Grand Opera. From Feb 21st, 2008 through Mar 7th, 2009. Cultures collide, generations are at war and lovers fall irresistibly, helplessly and hopelessly in love. You can almost smell the jasmine in this lush vision of Southern India, peopled by mystical princesses, peasants, and Brahmins, well-meaning officers of the British Army and even a few gods. Feel the heady love and crushing despair in this passionate opera, and relish some of opera’s greatest show-stoppers, including Lakmé’s transcendent “Bell Song” and the heartwarming “Flower Duet.”
The remarkable Leah Partridge shares the title role with Evelyn Pollock, a prominent emerging artist in both America and Europe. Experience the most mesmerizing soprano/mezzo duet ever composed.
