One thing opera singers have in common with people who dive for pearls for a living is the ability to take deep breaths and dig deep within themselves for courage before plunging into the great wide blue unknown. L.A. Opera continues its new season with the second work in a row by French composer Georges Bizet, whose beloved Carmen was given a rousing if traditional staging last month. His earlier and more obscure 1863 opera, The Pearl Fishers, is being performed by the local company for the first time, in a production by director Penny Woolcock that centers on two fisherman (Mexican vocalists Javier Camarena and Alfredo Daza) whose friendship is threatened by their mutual attraction to a veiled priestess (the always fierce Georgian coloratura soprano Nino Machaidze).
