Description
A wonderful array of singers—including baritone Rodney Gilfry as Pelléas, soprano Isabel Rey as Mélisande, and baritone Michael Volle as Golaud—came together in 2004 for this Zurich Opera production of Debussy's only finished full-length opera (based on the play of the same name by Symbolist author and Nobel Prize winner, Maurice Maeterlinck). Gilfry was praised by the San Francisco Chronicle for his "vivid stage presence" and "rich, rolling baritone with a superb upper range." Rey is internationally known for her exquisite vocal technique and sensitive acting skills. In combination with the wintery stage setting, her crystal-clear soprano helps evoke the opera's dream world of the subconscious. This production was created by celebrated German actor and stage director Sven-Eric Bechtolf.

"When [Gilfry] sings he opens a formidable treasure chest of intelligent artistry. The voice is resonant, flexible and smooth, wide in range, and he applies it with deep, searching thoughtfulness to whatever he happens to be tackling…. An artist of the first order."—Financial Times

"The musical values are quite fine. Welser-Möst gets sensitive playing out of the orchestra … and he makes good decisions about tempos."—Classical Net
