The Makropulos case focuses on the issue of longevity - the pros and cons of living for 337 years, as happens to the mysterious Emilia Marty, the sexually irresistible prima donna who's seen it all and done it all. Part grotesque human comedy, part profound personal tragedy, Janáček's opera examines the eternal mystery of human existence with uniquely life-enhancing vision. -- Résumé de la notice dérivée

Pelléas et Mélisande by Claude Debussy ( Recording )

James Levine's affection for Debussy's masterful score creates a performance rich in orchestral and vocal colors, with all the subtle emotional shifts of the drama vividly brought to life. The magnificent Frederica von Stade is Mélisande, in a production staged for her 25th Met anniversary. Victor Braun and Dwayne Croft are half-brothers Golaud and Pelléas--one Mélisande's husband, the other her lover. Marilyn Horne brings her sumptuous voice to the role of Geneviève, Pelléas and Golaud's mother, and Robert Lloyd is heartbreaking as the blind old king Arkel

James Levine masterfully leads a stellar cast that includes Carol Vaness and Tatiana Troyanos as the sisters, Jerry Hadley and Thomas Hampson as their fiancés, Betsy Norden as Despina, and Richard Van Allen as Don Alfonso
