Read more about the opera Lakmé

It is a pity that our amateur opera groups can't afford to stage rarities like this more often.

Lakmé is a most enjoyable work, full of attractive melodies, and dramatically plotted with little exotic touches. It is a more satisfying piece than the far more famous Pearl Fishers. Its neglect by the professional operatic sector seems quite surprising.

Fife Opera offered an excellent performance.
