Maurice Ravel’ Les enfants et les sortilèges at Gusman Concert Hall

Thu Nov 21, 2019

This timeless masterpiece from 1925 by Maurice Ravel, with libretto by Colette, and originally choreographed by George Balanchine, tells the story of a mischievous child who must suffer the fantastical consequences of his wicked actions. His very home comes to life in order to teach him a lesson, along with an opportunity for redemption. The opera is in French with English surtitles in a chamber orchestration for two pianos, cello, and flute.
