Pelleas Et Melisande.


  • Debussy Pelléas et Mélisande 148′ ((sung in French with English surtitles))

“She was such a quiet creature, wrapped in mystery as we all are…” In an ancient castle not far from the sea, the princess Mélisande falls in love – and uncovers passions as wonderful as they are deadly. Moving, mysterious and heartbreakingly beautiful, Debussy’s fairytale opera will make an unforgettable climax to our Debussy celebrations, and Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla has gathered a truly stellar cast.

There will be a 60-minute interval after Act 3.
