Anne Sophie Duprels (Isabeau) © Ali Wright

A game of two halves: Ariadne auf Naxos at Longborough

Clare Presland (Composer) © Matthew Williams-Ellis

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.
