    Good reviews for Pelléas et Mélisande at the Grimeborn Festival

    Pelléas et Mélisande has had extremely good reviews at the Grimeborn Festival in Dalston so don’t miss your chance to see it at Bury Court on Wednesday 18th September.  Tickets are available.

    The London Evening Standard wrote:
