Laurent Pelly‘s superb production thrilled audiences at the Opéra Comique in Paris, and now Lakmé, Léo Delibes’s absolute masterpiece, is on the bill at the Opéra de Nice for three exceptional performances on 29 September, 1 and 3 October 2023 with a new cast. Kathryn Lewek, who made a big impression last season in Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor, returns to the Côte d’Azur capital to sing the aria of the bells and perform as Lakmé, another iconic role. Thomas Bettinger (Gérald) will only have eyes for her, jealously protected by Nilakantha, her father, performed by Jean-Luc Ballestra. Jacques Lacombe directs.
