Why See LA Opera - Pelleas and Melisande?

Classical & Opera

A love triangle for the ages

After discovering a beautiful and entrancing woman whilst lost in the forest, Prince Golaud decides to take her back to his castle as his new bride in this dreamlike love story by Debussy. But, to his surprise, her arrival does not go smoothly. As his winning younger brother Pelleas and the mysterious Melisande grow closer, Goland becomes obsessed with trying to catch them out, leading to an outcome befitting of the kind of man who would take a strange forest woman home to be his wife without consulting said woman in the process.

Sensual and engaging, discover the story of Pelleas and Melisande in this ravishing production directed by James Conlon that examines the allure of forbidden love and obsession in a whirl of secrets, betrayal and really long hair.
