Canolfan Ucheldre Centre

Canolfan Ucheldre Centre


This production of Lakmé, directed by Brendan Wheatley with musical direction John Beswick, is set in India during the 1880’s. Though famous for the ‘Flower Duet’, which has become so familiar, Lakmé contains many other hidden musical gems including the stratospheric and challenging ‘Bell Song’.

Like other French operas of the period, it captures the ambience of the Orient seen through Western eyes and, topically for today, tells of religious tensions and conflict leading to personal sacrifice, heartbreak and death.

Sung in English.
