The passionate life of Claude Debussy

Robert Powell evokes, through the words of the composer himself, the personality of one of the most fascinating celebrities in the history of music, Claude Debussy. Charismatic, almost outrageously unconventional, with an unmistakable charm, he was a real bohemian, both in the intimate atmosphere of his home, in the nightclubs of Montmartre or in the aristocratic salons of the Parisian society.

Liza Goddard joins Robert to personify the unhappy, unfulfilled women who have been enchanted by this bizarre and complex man. Shootings, suicide attempts, adultery, public scandal – all revealed throughout the story of Debussy’s passionate life!

Inspired music that has shocked since its appearance through its sensuality and bold harmonic language will accompany the dramatic narrative of the composer’s life; and we can see how much this quixotic genius took pleasure in shocking the Parisian world!

Cynical humour and a desire for fun are suggestively revealed in his own words.
