Opera at Playhouse Square 

When: Thu., Sept. 23 2010

Opera Cleveland is fighting the economy like every other company across the country, but it's not skimping on innovation. For its production of Georges Bizet's The Pearl Fishers, dance scenes feature choreography and performance from Groundworks Dance Theatre. To evoke the undersea world of the pearl divers, they've shot underwater footage to be projected on the set. Bizet's tale of two men and their forbidden love of a virgin won its place on the schedule by audience demand. The aria in which the two men swear to renounce the girl and stay true to their friendship is one of the most famous in all of opera. The Pearl Fishers will be performed at 7:30 p.m. tonight, 8 p.m. Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday at the State Theatre at Playhouse Square (1519 Euclid Ave.). Tickets range from $25 to $110; call 216-241-6000 or visit operacleveland.org. — Gill
