Bel Cantanti Opera Summer Festival: Ravel's "L'Efant et les Sortileges" (Silver Spring)
To be a child for a moment, to see the magical world through the child's eyes - this is what Ravel wanted us to experience in his fairy tale, a lyrical phantasy in two parts L'Enfant et les Sortileges (The Child and the Magic Spells). This is a story about a naughty child, who is being panished for his bad behavior, but taught compassion and forgiveness by the ordinary things, magically coming to life: an armchair, a grandfather clock, a teapot, wallpaper, a math book, squirrel, black and white cats and others. The opera ends with Child's words:" Mama, Mama!". Not to miss!  In costume with English surtitles
