Paris' Opera de la Bastille celebrated the 150th birthday of Claude Debussy with avant-garde director Robert Wilson's "wondrous" (Le Figaro) production of Pelleas et Melisande featuring a stellar cast headed by Stephane Degout, Elena Tsallagova and Vincent Le Texier in the lead roles, and supported by high-caliber performers such as Anne-Sofie von Otter and Franz Joseph Selig in smaller roles. "The singers have integrated Wilson's language of gestures and lighting to a degree never attained by previous casts" (Le Figaro). Philippe Jordan gives a transparent reading of Debussy' haunting score.
