Seminar: Pelléas et Mélisande
Date: Tuesday, March 7, 2023
Location: Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Fifth Floor Salon
Pre-seminar Reception: 6:00PM
Speakers: James Conlon, LA Opera Music Director
James Conlon, Principal Conductor and Richard Seaver Music Director at LA Opera, will share his deeply insightful analysis of the sensual, exquisitely nuanced score of Claude Debussy's only completed opera, informed by a lifetime of Maestro Conlon's being "possessed" by this 1902 French masterpiece of an enigmatic dream world where forbidden live blossoms. The spring production (March 25-April 16, 2023) marks Pelléas et Mélisande's first LA Opera staging in over a quarter century.
Join your fellow Opera League members and guests for our pre-seminar reception at 6:00PM before Maestro Conlon steps up to the mic at 7:00PM to wow us about what he calls "one of the five or six greatest works in any musical repertoire... When you are caught in its spell no other music exists."
