In Ravel, Jean Echenoz explores and improvises on the last ten years of the French composer’s life and retraces his career, both glorious and tragic. Director Anne-Marie Lazarini paints a portrait of a Ravel as captured by literature and stages the romantic universe shared by three actors, notably Quebecker Michel Ouimet, who will play the role of Ravel. Throughout the play, the piano accompanies them, like an imaginary score. A play at the crossroads, between literature and music, dream and reality.
