"Les pêcheurs de perles, which Bizet composed very rapidly in the summer of 1863 when he was 24, was his second opera to be staged but probably the sixth he had composed... The three principal roles are some of the best in French opera of its time, and the opera’s success is now assured." Hugh Macdonald in Grove Music Online. Item #28988
