Stage Director

Bizet’s The Pearl Fishers – Opera Boston (2007) – Boston Globe

Opera Boston brings rare Bizet to life

The company’s vivid and airy new production, directed by James Marvel, opened last night, and all three performances sold out before the curtain went up. Marvel’s staging, his first for the company, has a fanciful touch and a vibrant look, saturated with bright colors that seem about right for an opera set in ancient Ceylon. The production boasts plenty of dancing and shadow puppetry, put to attractive and poetic ends.
