N.C. Opera’s season finale brings Georges Bizet’s “The Pearl Fishers” to Raleigh’s Memorial Auditorium this weekend. In ancient Ceylon, the rivalry of two pearl divers for the beautiful priestess Leila finds expression in many lush melodies, including the highly popular tenor-baritone duet, “Au fond du temple saint.” Timothy Myers conducts.
