Pelléas et Mélisande: Kosky's sleep-talking, nightmare

Pelléas et Mélisande © Monika Rittershaus
There’s no doubt that Mélisande endeavours to escape past troubles when she first appears in Barrie Kosky’s production of Debussy’s opera, yet Nadja Mchantaf is no reticent, wispy maiden. Every vocal and physical gesture – always precise and penetrating – displays an atypically forthright quest for vitality, something that Arkel’s chauvinistic world does not readily offer.

Penetrating Schreker’s kaleidoscopic score

Die Gezeichneten © Iko Freese | drama-berlin.de
Franz Schreker’s Die Gezeichneten (The Branded One) is an unsettling work given the storyline’s background of abduction and clandestine sexual abuse. Calixto Bieito, as expected, eschews ambiguity regarding what goes on behind the scenes, and casts even the titular cripple Alviano Salvago in a damning light.

Sir Bryn Terfel (Falstaff) and Rupert © ROH | Catherine Ashmore
Sir Bryn Terfel’s Falstaff is still a cherishable rogue as he takes on the title role in Robert Carsen’s joyous staging at the Royal Opera.

Butterfly's castle: Puccini soars at Savonlinna

Sae-Kyung Rim (Cio-Cio-San) and Mikael Kohi © Soila Puurtinen
There is a reason that Butterfly has the highest blub factor in the repertory, for it is not only for Cio-Cio-San that we weep, but for ourselves.
