Pelleas et Melisande

  • Cutler Majestc Theatre (map)

Presented by Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Music: Opera Institute and School of Theatre

An opera in five acts with music by Claude Debussy in a new orchestration by Stephen McNeff


Conducted by William Lumpkin with Stage Direction by E. Loren Meeker


Pelléas et Mélisande, based on Maeterlink’s symbolist play, tells a story of passion veiled in mystery set in an imaginary land in an unknown time. It is a love-triangle fraught with jealousy and human frailty ultimately ending in tragedy. Debussy’s evocative and rarely heard impressionist opera paints a psychological world full of hope and despair with haunting harmonies, penetrating melodies and lush orchestration. Sung in French with English supertitles
