Pelleas et Mellisande

Sep 1, 2005 11:30 pm
I have listened to at least a dozen versions of Debussy’s Pelleas et Mellisande but can never quite seem to find that thing that makes it really work for me. It is either an opera I love to hate, or hate to love—not sure which. There were a couple recent versions that seemed to have some potential but I have not had the chance to really listen to them closely. The recent broadcast from the Opera Bastille in Paris on NPR’s World of Opera seemed like it might have something to recommend it.
