Pelleas et Melisande is one of my favorite operas, which I've seen many times, either in theater or on glass engravings, and I must say that,
regardless of the available means, this was one of the performances I've seen to date that I've enjoyed the most. I was proud that such a
sensitive and musical production was made in the garden of Europe planted by the sea, proving that there is no curse that prevents us from
doing much better than what is the norm here. Exemplary! -Rui Vilar
