According to Dr. Michael Klinghoffer, Les pêcheurs de perles (The Pearl Fishers), Georges Bizet’s opera about two men's long-standing friendship and how it is rocked by romantic rivalry, is a perfect choice for his orchestra.

Klinghoffer should know, and he will demonstrate as such when he takes the conductor’s podium at four performances of excerpts from the opera on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The ensemble in question is the Conservatory Orchestra of the Rubin Academy of Music and Dance, which comprises a bunch of junior high and high school-aged musicians, and which Klinghoffer has been lovingly nurturing for close to four years.
