Conceived as an impossible accumulation of questions and answers, this staging materializes in the form of a black box: the great enigma, in fact, modern metaphor of the human mind. A seemingly simple block that keeps inside the complexity of the oneiric codes and the information about the tragic death of Mélisande, and which, at the same time, relates to the outside world through an essential element, the water.
The Symbolist opera of Debussy is explored by the language of dreams, obviously the wake of Maeterlinck, Freud and Surrealism, and aesthetically close to current artists such as Lars Von Trier or David Lynch. In this proposal Mélisande lives a story circular, that also the spectator will live as their own dream.
