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
