NOTE: MP3 sound required. Visit Support for details.

Dedicated to Debussy's opera Pelleas et Melisande; a fantastic dream world, conveyed with sound files from the opera and using surreal paintings by German painter Max Ernst. All icons, cursors, and graphics in general are completely new and very high quality so make sure you have a good graphics card set to at least 24-bit or better. Stereo sound files bring the subtle sound of Pelleas et melisande to your desktop. Startup/wait/shutdown logo screens are included in an easy-to-use logo installation program that automatically backs up your original logo screens for later use.

The bitmap wallpaper image is a little faded and rough around the edges do to the use of interactive warps. Although this may or may not be a bad point, the author states that "DUE TO THE STYLE OF THE OPERA ALL SOUND FILES ARE EXTREMELY quiet!". The purple color scheme may also be a little too loud for this type of theme setting.

A better wallpaper image and maybe a different color scheme would help this review. At any rate, you have to appreciate the opera to get anything out of this package. - Personally, I'd wait for an update.
