Claude Debussy

Pelléas et Mélisande

contemporary opera 14 premiere

February 25., Friday 20:00

Eiffel Art Studios – Miklós Bánffy Stage

Opera in five acts, in French with Hungarian and English surtitles

The plot might remind some viewers of Tristan und Isolde, as it also involves an older man standing in the way of two young lovers whose passion for each other costs them their lives. This piece nearly devoid of actual stage action unfolds in the borderlands between dreams and reality, which is exactly what piqued Debussy’s interest! An exciting pairing with this remarkable and somewhat surreal world will be the Danish ensemble Hotel Pro Forma founded by Kirsten Dehlholm, and their unique stylistic language. What they do is create productions that span branches of the arts and genres, merging the visual arts with text, theatre, installations and architecture, not to mention the many other forms they develop through their constant dialogue with each other.
