Pelléas & Mélisande

Lauré Lussier's second orchestral electroacoustic album on Adventurous Music  (Leipzig, Germany).

This album is based and was inspired by Maurice Maeterlinck's (1862-1949) symbolic and tragic play "Pelléas et Mélisande".

Mélisande, a young woman, is found lost in the forest by Prince Golaud. He will take her to the castle of his grandfather, King Arkel where Golaud will take care of her and marry her. She and Pelléas, Golaud’s half-brother, fall in love with one another, which arouses a mad jealousy in the husband.

Maurice Maeterlinck's play is a timeless and symbolist drama. The major dramaturgical characteristic of the play is darkness and penumbra; the weak luminosity covers the vulnerability of two secret lovers who should not be seen... It is better to rise to the degree of symbolist vision to see through and beyond.

The music was composed first, with the specific dialogs in mind. The musical motifs associated to the play’s characters’ strengths, weaknesses and inner thoughts have been composed in relation to the different themes and situations that evolve throughout the work.


Pelléas & Mélisande by Lauré Lussier is an interpretation of the play by Maurice Maeterlinck. This is an adventure for the senses! Rightly released on Adventurous Music.
