Inscrutable to us and inscrutable to themselves are the characters in Debussy’s dream-like and hypnotizing masterpiece Pelléas et Mélisande. The French composer’s single completed opera is a pivotal work of the Fin de Siècle. Free from all ornamentation, the opera allows the eyes and ears to focus directly on the psychological drama of these driven human beings: »Barrie Kosky’s tension-laden, black and white product reminds us of what’s really important in musical theater.« [Berliner Morgenpost]
Defying all convention, Maurice Maeterlinck reduced the external action of his plays to a minimum; everything of consequence is to be found in the implications between the lines, and is created only through the viewer’s powers of empathy and imagination. Debussy congenially captured the ambiguous currents of the source material in a musical chamber play in the Impressionist style. This production by Barrie Kosky conjures up the psychogram of a moribund, late-bourgeois society which has nothing with which to counter a world out of balance other than the solace of a finely chiselled melancholy.

The musical direction is provided by Canadian-born Jordan de Souza, Kapellmeister of the Komische Oper Berlin and a rising star in the international conducting scene. Poetry by Maurice Maeterlinck
