Enjoy a double of French one-act operas, including Maurice Ravel’s fantasy L’enfant et les sortilèges (The Boy and the Magic) and Debussy’s L-enfant prodigue (The Prodigal Son). Set to a libretto by legendary French writer Colette, The Boy and the Magic tells the story of what happens when a bad-tempered child has too many tantrums, causing the furniture in his room to magically come to life. Debussy’s adaptation of the famous Biblical parable tells the story of the son, Azael, turning his back on his family in search of the excitement and riches of the world.
