See Ravel’s L’heure espagnole and L’enfant et les sortilèges at Lewes Depot Cinema on Sunday 14 April.
Two sparkling miniatures
Hailed by the Financial Times as ‘pure magic’, Laurent Pelly’s unique interpretation of Ravel’s two short operas is a true spectacle.
L’heure espagnole is a sassy and funny sex farce; while L’enfant et les sortilèges is a touching mortality tale in which fantastical fairy tale characters, animals, furniture and crockery all come to life to teach a small boy about kindness.
Captured live at Glyndebourne’s 2012 Festival, this award-winning recording stars French mezzo-soprano Stéphanie d’Oustrac and Canadian baritone Elliot Madore.
