Debussy Pelléas et Mélisande at the Barbican – 9th and 10 January 2016

pelleas

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.
