What if, for just a few hours, fairytales were true?

Singing princesses from tall towers, temper tantrums gone awry, unconventional love affairs, and shepherds who can’t catch a break are just a few of many things you’ll find within the operas and ballets of Debussy, Dukas, and Ravel. This edition combines volumes 2 and 3 of the Tales of Love, Loss, Magic, and Reality eBook anthology to provide a one-stop place for the theatrical works of these French masters of music. Included are Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande and Jeux; Dukas’ Ariane et Barbe-bleue and La Péri; and Ravel’s L’Heure espagnole, L’Enfant et les Sortilèges, Daphnis et Chloé, and Ma Mère l’Oye.
