Notes and Editorial Reviews

Also Available: on Blu-ray video and DVD

An English lieutenant chances on the daughter of a Brahmin priest as she gathers flowers by the water. It is love at first sight. How long can their love survive when they come from such different worlds?

One of Australia’s most acclaimed and awarded singers, soprano Emma Matthews, stars as Lakmé, alongside internationally acclaimed tenor Aldo Di Toro as Gerald, the love-struck officer. Rounding out a fabulous cast is the multi-award-winning mezzo- soprano Dominica Matthews singing Lakmé’s servant Mallika.
