Presented by Dr. Jeffrey Langford

Based on the symbolist play by Nobel Prize–winner Maurice Maeterlinck, Pelléas et Mélisande has gained a passionate following since its premiere in 1902 and is a prime example of Debussy’s style and genius. This season, the newly appointed Jeanette Lerman-Neubauer Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads a cast that includes mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard and tenor Paul Appleby as the starcrossed pair. Join lecturer Jeffrey Langford as he examines the innovation and history of Debussy’s only full-length operatic work.
