5.0 out of 5 stars The milestone recording of an enchanting creation, 16 Feb. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Debussy - Pelleas et Melisande [DVD] [1992] [2002] (DVD)
Much has been written elsewhere about this seminal production by Peter Stein with Pierre Boulez for WNO. The production is stylised but stylish, simple but effective, full of wonderful tableaux and imagery that lingers in the memory long afterwards. The cast is excellent all round, with very believable performances, although the French diction is a little imprecise at times. Boulez creates the unique sound world that envelops the viewer, although there are moments when I feel his touch is a little cool and uninvolved. But these are just tiny criticisms of a milestone recording that will continue to be the first choice of any collection for many decades to come - a perfect version to introduce you to this enchanting creation.
