The collaboration with the German director Peter Stein turns out well: the staging is both imaginative and intelligent, creating credibly impetuous and self-centered characters and coherent scenes that illuminate the action rather than obsucuring it. - Hagley's MÃ©lisande is both devious and anguished, Archer's Pelleas fervent and callow. Maxwell's Golaud progresses convincingly from bluffly insecure prince to violent husband. The orchestra plays lucidly and powerfully, but with the textural clarity and timbral refinement that have always been Boulez' specialities."
