Pelléas et Mélisande by Claude Debussy( Recording )

84 editions published between 1979 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 1,596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Levine brilliantly leads Debussy's colorful score, illuminating the mysterious world in which the title characters are trapped. Jeannette Pilou is the elusive young Mélisande, discovered deep in a forest by Golaud (José van Dam in an incandescent performance), who marries her. But it is Golaud's younger half-brother, Pelléas (Dale Duesing), with whom she falls in love. The increasingly jealous Golaud warns Pelléas to keep away from his wife. When the lovers meet one last time before Pelléas's departure on a journey, Golaud kills him. Mélisande gives birth to a daughter and dies, leaving Golaud to wonder if she ever loved him. Jerome Hines co-stars as the old King Arkel, Golaud and Pelléas's grandfather.This performance is taken from the James Levine 40th anniversary CD box set

Bizet's enticing gypsy has seldom been as earthy and Gallic as when Régine Crespin unleashed her feminine wiles to capture the heart of every man in her path.

Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero
