(VOV) - The children’s choir of the Paris National Opera Orchestra will give two performances at the Hanoi Opera House on April 18 and 19.
Twelve primary artists and 65 members of the choir will perform the masterpiece L’ Enfant et les Sortileges by Maurice Ravel, which reflects the composer’s sensitivity and love for fairy tales.
Conductor Gael Darchen will also direct around 450 young people aged between 7 and 16, together with the choir of Maitrise de Hauts-de-Seine in special performances for the audience.
L’ Enfant et les Sortileges is an imaginative opera composed by Maurice Ravel between 1919 and 1925 in collaboration with the French author Collete, who later wrote the book “Divertissement pour ma fille.”
This was Ravel’s second and final opera after “The Spanish Hour” he composed in 1907.
