Some forthcoming performances by the Victorian Opera:

Pelleas and Melisande

Victorian Opera present Debussy's  Pelleas and Melisande with Samuel Dundas as Golaud,  Angus Wood as Pelleas, David Parkin as Arkel, Siobhan Stagg as Melisande, Liane Keegan as Genevieve, Sophia Wasley as Yniold and Stephen Marsh as Shepherd/Doctor with Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) Orchestra conducted by Richard Mills.

Debussy's only opera is a masterwork of tonal colour and sensitive setting of the French language. White Hat strongly recommends going out of your way to see this great work which is rarely performed in Australia.

Sung in French with English surtitles. Running time is approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes, plus interval.
