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
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 subtitles
