Pelléas und Mélisande Maurice Maeterlinck

Regie: Daniel Kramer

Bühne: Annette Murschetz

Kostüme: Heidi Hackl

Musik: Tei Blow

Licht: Friedrich Rom

Dramaturgie Alexander Kerlin

Within the castle’s gloomy walls Mélisande is haunted by horrific images that suddenly emerge from the haze of her suppressed memories. Pelléas, Golaud’s brother, is the only person who is able to cheer Mélisande up and awaken her desire, which makes Golaud violently jealous. Daniel Kramer’s adaptation of Maurice Maeterlinck’s symbolist play (1893) focuses on Mélisande and uses intense images to explore the structure of traumatic experience.
