Delibes' story is set in India in the mid-19th century when the British were imposing a suppressive rule over the many religious sects. Nilakantha, the leader of one of these forbidden sects, is secretly bringing up his daughter Lakmé as a priestess, to be worshipped as divine by his followers. He keeps her isolated in a temple which he has surrounded with a bamboo stockade, declaring the temple and garden to be sacred ground.

"Lakmé was a warm affirmation that Joan Sutherland is not only a great star, but she is a sensitive and subtle artist..." The Financial Review

Featuring: Joan Sutherland, Huguette Tourangeau, Henri Wilden, The Australian Opera Chorus, The Elizabethan Sydney Orchestra. Conductor: Richard Bonynge.
