Pelléas et Mélisande, directed by Robert Wilson (DVD)


2012 DVD release of Robert Wilson's iconic Pelleas and Melisande production, which premiered at the Salzburger Festival in 1997 and has been in repertoire at the Paris Opera to this day. 

As Mélisande, the wide-eyed Elena Tsallagova fills out Wilson's spacious poses with the feline self-absorption of a Tang-dynasty princess, her voice as cool and clear as a wind chime. (Opera News)
