The child and the spells
A petulant child must face revenge from everyday objects, angry at him for bullying them.

Envisioned in the flush of enthusiasm by Colette and thoroughly pondered by Ravel, this work rejects all theatrical conventions: how does one stage objects, animals, elements? A child doesn’t bother with materialistic matters when giving into fantasy and whims…

Lyric fantasy from a poem by Colette. Created at the Opéra Comique in 1926. Version for pianos.

Musical and artistic direction Sarah Sarah Koné • Costumes Lucie Guillemet • Video Quentin Balpe • Choreography Christine Bonneton • Soloists and choir Maîtrise Populaire de l’Opéra Comique
