Pelleas & Melisande - Aix


Rolling back a few years and this was the first iteration of Pelleas & Melisande. It was an intense experience because of the enormous set which had to be moved around incredibly fast and incredibly quietly by a brilliant team of backstage crew. The performers were, of course, wonderful, but the most moving moment of the performance for me was when the crew came out to bow at the end - the combined human endeavour was amazingly touching.
