Pelléas and Mélisande

Claude Debussy

Mélisande is a maiden discovered wandering in the forest. She finds a mysterious castle, where she tragically falls in love with the young Pelléas. Debussy's dreamlike symbolist opera is here given an enchantingly beautiful setting.

Rarely performed, Pelléas et Mélisande is one of Debussy's most important works and opened up new vistas for the art of opera. Plumbing the depths of the human soul, the narrative combines in a fascinating way with the music that sparkles like rippling water. Marco Arturo Marelli's visionary staging including a huge pool of water is one of the most acclaimed productions ever at the FNO.
