Presentation

Mélisande appears from nowhere and a mysterious, troubling light penetrates the heart of men. Pelléas and Golaud can't resist this magnet from another world. In her presence, the secluded castle of old Arkel and his family is steeped in an atmosphere redolent with unspeakable desire and irrepressible jealousy. The opera by Claude Debussy (1862-1918) has continued to exert its bewitching power since it was first staged. It is a pure, dark diamond that transformed French music in such a way that for over a hundred years, it has been impossible to compose an opera in French without nodding to this masterpiece.
