Esa-Pekka Salonen conductor
Debussy’s only completed opera is a landmark in 20th century music. It is widely considered to be a perfect fusion of the French language and music, fulfilling the composer’s wish to ‘graft his dream’ on a text. Maeterlinck’s symbolist drama, focusing on a claustrophobic love triangle in the imaginary city of Allemonde, is made unforgettably poignant by Debussy’s music. This concert performance is sure to be a highlight of the City of Light series.
