Michigan Opera Theatre Goes Back to the ‘Pearl Fishers’

John Grigatis/The Detroit News

They ran it up the flagpole before, in 2004, but Bizet’s The Pearl Fishers is one of those operas that’s flashy and exotic and doesn’t require the viewer to strain in order to follow what’s going on, so the Michigan Opera Theatre’s brought it back to the boards beginning this Saturday at 7:30 at the Detroit Opera House.
