Notes & Reviews:

"There's more to life than top notes," Natalie Dessay has said. She has, of course, made her reputation with the florid, stratospheric heroines of Romantic French and Italian opera, but in this new DVD from Vienna she portrays a heroine who presents few opportunities for vocal display, but many for subtle characterization - Debussy's Melisande. Dessay had sung the role just once before, in concert in Edinburgh in 2005. 'Pelleas et Melisande' is full of ambiguity and its vocal lines closely reflect Maurice Maeterlink's often enigmatic text. A few unaccompanied, ballad-like phrases are the closest Melisande gets to an aria.
