Product Overview

Debussy and the Theatre means, in effect, Debussy and Pellias et Milisande, the only stage work Debussy chose and completed himself without a definite production in view. The opera both established Debussys mature style and reputation in the forefront of contemporary composers and changed the course of operatic history. But Pell as was also largely responsible for Debussys compulsive inachievement in the theatre. Before it he delayed completing other works so that Albert Carr s production at the Op ra-Comique would be his theatre debut; and then its traumatic dress-rehearsal in April 19o2 left him reluctant to undergo another similar experience. This, coupled with his search for lyrical librettos or scenarios that could inspire the rhythm and colour that he regarded as vital ingredients in theatre music, resulted in a career littered with abandoned projects. The story of this most fascinating of love hate relationships with the stage is told, as far as possible, in the composers own words or from contemporary documents. *Author: Orledge, Robert/ Robert, Orledge *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 404 *Publication Date: 2009/03/19 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.00 x 6.00 x 0.90 inches
