I think we got ourselves a beautiful beautiful show here in Aix-en-Provence! Katie Mitchell's Pelléas et Mélisande is a journey into the psyche of Mélisande played outsandingly by the incredible Barbara Hannigan. The rest of the cast is equally impressive. The conductor , no other than Esa-Pekka Salonen leading the London Philarmonic Orchestra. What an experience!
