Claude Debussy's only opera, about lost love and forbidden relationships, is based on the Nobel Prize winner Maurice Maeterlinck's play of the same name. Despite the work's popularity, this is the first time that Pelléas and Mélisande will be performed at The Norwegian National Opera & Ballet.Golaud is lost, but meets the mysterious woman Mélisande, who doesn't want to tell him where she comes from. After marrying her in secret, Golaud takes Mélisande to his grandfather's castle, where illness and mystery rule. When the young wife meets her husband's younger half-brother Pelléas, something happens between them – "something bigger than myself", says Mélisande. Observing the unfolding events Golaud becomes extremely jealous, and there is nothing that can be done to prevent the love triangle's inevitable tragedy.Behind The Norwegian Opera and Ballet's new production is the young Australian director Simon Stone, who takes us into a closed, tightly-controlled world of dark family secrets, deep chasms, and light, young love.Pelléas and MélisandeMusic: Claude DebussyLibretto: Claude Debussy, basert på Maurice Maeterlincks dramaDirector: Simon StoneMusical direction: Karl-Heinz Steffens
