Bizet's exotic opera The Pearl Fishers is now released on the Chandos Opera in English label. Although not as well-known as Bizet's Carmen, The Pearl Fishers contains a wealth of attractive music, including the well-known duet 'Au fond du Temple saint', one of the UK's 'favourite tunes'. There is surely no better way of discovering the jewels of this romantic work than listening to the superb voices of Rebecca Evans, Barry Banks, Simon Keenlyside, and Alastair Miles. A leading interpreter of the bel-canto repertoire, internationally renowned for his conducting of operas of Rossini, Donizetti and Bellini, the Australian Brad Cohen here makes his debut on Chandos. He first came to public attention when, a year after winning the 1994 Leeds Conductor's Competition, he conducted the world premiere of Thomas Adès's Powder Her Face. Since that promising beginning he has conducted a wide-ranging repertoire at English National Opera, Opera Australia and Opera North, to name but a few. This recording is the first to use Cohen's own edition of The Pearl Fishers. Cohen was able to secure the original conductor's score from 1863 and has created a new version, published by Peters Edition, that is arguably much closer to Bizet's intentions. The soprano Rebecca Evans takes the role of Leila. Her previous appearances on OiE include the role of Gretel in the Grammy-Award-winning Hansel and Gretel. 'It was Rebecca Evans's Gretel, who took the honours. Spinning out radiant lines of delicious purity, she made it hard to see how the role could be sung better', wrote The Times. The baritone Simon Keenlyside, who takes the role of Zurga, has previously appeared on Chandos' The Magic Flute. In September he will appear in Don Giovanni at the Royal Opera House. Both Barry Banks and Alastair Miles have recorded discs of arias for Chandos and here take the roles of Nadir and Nourabad, respectively.
