No performance info available


Presented by Swansea City Opera

By Léo Delibes

This jewel of an opera is best known for the famous ‘Flower Duet’, which has become one of the most familiar numbers any composer, in any genre, has ever written, even used by our national airline on TV ads as the peaceful accompaniment to a jetliner floating through wispy clouds!

Swansea City Opera are setting their production of Lakmé in India during the Raj of the 1880’s, sung in English and accompanied by chamber orchestra. There will be a pre-performance talk about the opera and production given by the Artistic Director of Swansea City Opera, Brendan Wheatley at 6pm.

Reviews of Lakme

What the press say


Highly effective lighting, creative use of that simple set and space, captivating acting and some superb singing beautifully supported by the orchestra all made for a truly authentic poignancy

North Devon Journal

Words cannot really do justice to the quality of the singing throughout; the principals sang beautifully and their performances were utterly convincing with the effect on the audience profound

Keswick Reminder

There were some moments that were truly breathtaking. The full might of 15+ actors on stage singing in unison was stunning
