Love, Betrayal, and Sacrifice are All Themes Explored in This Performance of The Pearl Fishers

At the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, everyone can have an opportunity to experience excellence. The Kauffman Center’s is to enrich the lives of everyone in our community through extraordinary and diverse performing arts experiences. This season, we are proud to present the production of “The Pearl Fishers” this Friday.

During “The Pearl Fishers”, two old friends, one a simple pearl diver and the other a powerful island chieftain, are unexpectedly reunited with the woman whose beauty nearly destroyed their friendship. This “goddess among us” is a veiled priestess who wards off storms and evil spirits through a life of solitude.

To break her vow means certain death, but she and the young pearl diver fan the flames of a fiery forbidden love anyway. That’s when the storm really hits the sand. The chieftain, picking through what’s left of his village and his heart, must condemn both his best friend and his greatest desire. But the priestess has one final trick left up her sari.

This sensuous staging of Bizet’s exotic pre-Carmen classic explodes with expressive patterns and extravagant colors created by fashion designer Zandra Rhodes. The Pearl Fishers will be sung in French, with English subtitles. Tickets start at $35.50-$169.50 plus applicable fees and may be purchased online at We can guarantee that you don’t want to miss it!

Although we provide the utmost luxury at Savannah West Apartments in Kansas City, Missouri, we realize that you need to get out and socialize with those in your surrounding community. This event gives you the chance to do just that! Don’t hesitate to attend today!
