The great Renata Tebaldi leads the cast as Amelia in this memorable performance of Verdi's drama, still a rarity on stage in the 1960s.

Reunited with his daughter decades later, he faces political opposition from her lover, Gabriele Adorno (George Shirley).

James Levine brilliantly leads Debussy's colorful score, illuminating the mysterious world in which the title characters are trapped.

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
