Pelleas & Melisande at the Cutting Ball Theater

Come support Yale alumni in this special performance with discounted tickets that include pre- and post-show talks!!

   

Special Performance and Pre- and Post-Show of Pelleas and Melisande

Sunday, November 20th

 

You’re invited to a special Yale Club of San Francisco event on November 20th to experience Cutting Ball Theater’s re-envisioning of Pelleas and Melisande, Maurice Maeterlinck’s play that had inspired music from such renown composers as Fauré, Debussy, Schönberg and Sibelius.  With a crisp new translation, a set design influenced by the minimalist architecture Tadao Ando and music inspired by the minimalism of Steve Reich, it is no wonder that the play has received glowing reviews.

 

For this special event, the club will not only have the bonus of a Pre-show with Artistic Director Rob Melrose (Yale School of Drama ’97 and Managing Director Suzanne Appel (Yale School of Drama and School of Management ’11), but also a Post-show “talk-back” with members of the cast.  This is a one-of-kind event that you should not miss.  Plus, you would be supporting the Yale alumni in the theatrical arts.

 

There are a limited number of specially discounted tickets ($18 each) for YCSF members for this event, which are about half the usual price of Saturday tickets.  If you cannot make it on November 20th, you may still qualify for another discount at other performance times.  Please reserve your tickets soon, as seating is limited.  Additional information can be found at the Cutting Ball Theater website (http://cuttingball.com/season/11-12/pelleas-and-melisande-3/).
