I think we got ourselves a beautiful beautiful show here in Aix-en-Provence! Katie Mitchell's Pelléas et Mélisande is a journey into the psyche of Mélisande played outsandingly by the incredible Barbara Hannigan. The rest of the cast is equally impressive. The conductor , no other than Esa-Pekka Salonen leading the London Philarmonic Orchestra. What an experience!
And that's a wrap on SHAPES and last performance of Lucia in London.
Now I'm off to Aix-en-Provence for six weeks. Working on Katie Mitchell's Pelléas et Mélisande for the Festival in July!
Began shooting in Roberto Prestia's feature film SHAPES as Marnie, the lead female character. Great team of people, brilliant script, very exciting project.
