CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra is ready for a grand return to the freshly renovated Music Hall in Over-the-Rhine with performances of Pelléas et Mélisande  at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Listen to CSO Music Director Louis Langrée discuss the performance in the audio player below.

This is the piece of music that CSO Music Director Louis Langrée said he would take to a desert island. Immerse yourself in the sensuous dream world of Claude Debussy’s lyric masterpiece, a haunting tale of forbidden love told in voluptuous musical colors. The performance is sung in French with English subtitles.

Led by Langrée, this collaboration with the Cincinnati Opera features staging by directing sensation James Darrah, projection design by Adam Larsen, scenic design by Adam Rigg, costume design by Mattie Ullrich and lighting design by Pablo Santiago.
