Character Study—Leïla and Mélisande
Presented by Naomi Barrettara and Stephanie Pierson

Debussy’s Mélisande is an irresistible mystery to Golaud, who becomes dangerously suspicious of the bond she seems to share with his half-brother, Pelléas. In Bizet’s Les Pêcheurs de Perles, priestess Leïla has vowed never to be with a man, yet she is the object of both Nadir and Zurga’s desire. Are these two idolized women femmes fatales simply because of their irresistible allure? Our final session concludes with an exploration of these two fascinating French heroines.
