Dicionário Teosófico: Pelléas et Mélisande

Pelléas et Mélisande is a Symbolist play by Maurice Maeterlinck about the forbidden, doomed love of the title characters. Here we have the opera by Claude Debussy.
Golaud discovers Mélisande by a stream in the woods. She has lost her crown in the water, but does not wish to retrieve it. They marry and she instantly wins the favor of Arkël, who is ill. She falls in love with Pelléas. They meet by the fountain, where Mélisande loses her wedding ring. Golaud grows suspicious of the lovers, has Yniold spy on them, and discovers them caressing, whereupon he kills Pelléas and wounds Mélisande. She later dies after giving birth to an abnormally small girl.
