On the ancient island of Ceylon, a forbidden love threatens both the prosperity of a civilization and a vow of eternal friendship.
Share performance

Passion. Betrayal. Vengeance. Just another day in paradise.

Two old friends, one a simple pearl diver and the other a powerful island chieftain, are unexpectedly reunited with the woman whose beauty nearly destroyed their friendship. This "goddess among us" is a veiled priestess who wards off storms and evil spirits through a life of solitude and celibacy. To break her vow means certain death, but she and the young pearl diver fan the flames of a fiery forbidden love anyway. This sensual staging of Bizet's exotic pre-Carmen classic explodes with expressive patterns and extravagant colors created by fashion designer Zandra Rhodes.
