Let the chorus carry you on a fairytale journey to the kingdom of Old Allemonde. This enchanted land of ancient castles, shadowy forests and raging seas is alive and breathes, its rivers and waters whispering the call of fate. Prince Goulad’s discovery of a young girl by a spring unleashes a painful tale of obsession and perceptions, desire and death.
Pelleas and Melisande is a fresh and dynamic physical theatre piece devised by a group of young practitioners and invited for a special one-night-only appearance at the Back Loft following its successful run at Player's Theatre in Trinity College.
