An innovative new production of Debussy’s evocative opera Pelléas et Mélisande, produced in collaboration by two of the boldest creative minds in music and theatre today.
This concert sees long-term collaborators and Barbican regulars Sir Simon Rattle and Peter Sellars, return to Debussy’s iconic opera for the first time since their ground-breaking re-imagining over two decades ago. This all-new semi-staged production co-promoted by the London Symphony Orchestra and Barbican promises to confound all pre-conceptions, and will undoubtedly cast an exciting new light on Debussy’s sensuous score.
