About this event

Marking the 150th anniversary of Debussy's birth, Sir John Eliot Gardiner conducts this masterpiece of atmospheric suggestion, insinuating eroticism and doomed love, having recently performed it at Paris's Opéra Comique, the theatre in which it was premiered.

Although first performed at the Proms 36 years ago, this landmark opera has never before been heard with instruments of the period. Phillip Addis and Karen Vourc'h reprise their much-praised, fresh-voiced partnership in the title-roles.
