Spoiler alert: this one doesn't end well for either of them.
Lost in the forest, a hunter encounters an ethereal beauty with a mysterious past (and the lushest locks in opera—sorry, Samson!). Returning home as his new bride, she grows increasingly close to his handsome younger half-brother. Conducted by James Conlon (who “never fails“ according to Variety), Debussy’s sensual, exquisitely nuanced score captures an enigmatic dream world where forbidden love blossoms.
Kate Lindsey and Yunpeng Wang star as the secret lovers, with Willard White as King Arkel.
