Sir Simon Rattle

Sir Simon Rattle leads an all-star cast in this highly-anticipated new recording of Debussy's evocative opera 'Pelléas et Mélisande'. It was captured in January 2016 during performances of an innovative collaboration between Rattle and Peter Sellars, two of the boldest creative minds in music and theatre today. Supported by the London Symphony Chorus, prepared by renowned choral director Simon Halsey, it is a moving statement of intent for Rattle's tenure as LSO Music Director.
The plot, a love triangle between Prince Golaud, his wife Mélisande and his brother Pelléas, is shrouded in mystery and full of gripping twists and emotion-filled turns, ultimately ending in Pelléas' untimely death. The sensuous score contains some of Debussy's most exquisite music and perfectly crystalises the atmosphere of Maeterlinck's original play.

Concert reviews:
"Irresistible...the performance was being recorded for LSO Live. I shall be first in the queue to buy it" Rupert Christiansen, The Telegraph****

"Simon Rattle and Peter Sellars go headstrong into a bright future with the London Symphony Orchestra...It is a work that brings the best out of Rattle as an opera conductor too...The stature of Pelléas et Mélisande as one of the greatest of all operas was never in doubt, and the performance was dedicated to the memory of Pierre Boulez, who worked regularly with the LSO over almost half a century, and was a mentor to the young Rattle; Pelléas was also the only staged opera that he ever conducted in Britain." The Guardian****

"Rattle's conducting was immaculate... the performance has made me think about the work again" The Spectator
