Roaring 20s: Les Six Composers Revel in les Annees folles

Presented by concert:nova at The Transept

Feb 15 - 16 2016
Roaring 20s: Les Six Composers Revel in les Annees folles

Join us in exploring the Roaring 20s where Warhol, Picasso, Stravinsky and Diaghilev gathered, blurred the lines between painting, poetry, theater and music. Jean Cocteau takes us to 1920s Paris, where the “spirit of the new” was celebrated.

As a sequel to last season’s romping Salon Cabaret, we move forward in time to les Anness folles, where the spirit of the 1920’s was irreverent, rebelliuos and dynamic artistic expression. A group of avant-garde musicians, known as Les Six, were influenced by their god father, Jean Cocteau, and took up social criticism by way of satire, producing works like Les maries de la tour Eiffel (the Wedding Party on the Eiffel Tower), a nonsensical satire on the bourgeoisie.


Tickets are $25.00 in Advance, $30.00 at the door, and $12.00 for students.
