Simon Thompson
MusicWeb International, December 2013

This DVD from Essen is remarkable for capturing the performances of the two young leads in the main roles. Jacques Imbrailo’s Pelléas is young, impulsive and fuelled by an all-consuming passion. He manages to lighten his voice very impressively so as to convey the character’s youth and impetuosity…He uses his youth to enrich his acting and he is marvellous to watch as well as to listen to…Michaela Selinger’s Mélisande is excellent too. Selinger sings the role beautifully, but in the voice, too, there is a touch of coldness that enriches the character and the interpretation. The duets for Pelléas and Mélisande are…the highlights.

Vincent le Texier is excellent as Golaud…his performance in Paris was also top-notch.

Lehnhoff’s production is very good… © 2013 MusicWeb International Read complete review
