Rêverie, the life and loves of Claude Debussy

The De Beauvoir Association are staging a production of Lucy Parham's Rêverie, the fourth in her series of biographical programmes of composers’ words and music. Rêverie was written to celebrate the life and work of Claude Debussy and features monologues performed by renowned screen actor Robert Glenister.

Claude Debussy was one of the most prolific and innovative composers of the early 20th century, best known for the classic piano piece Clair de Lune.

Rêverie takes the form of a personal journal which follows Debussy from his initial success with the Prix de Rome in 1885 to his death in 1918. It features solo piano works Clair de Lune, Rêverie, Jardins sous la pluie, the Etudes and L’isle joyeuse.

Lucy Parham is one of the UK's finest pianists who has appeared at many of the world's leading concert venues.
Robert Glenister is best known for appearing in BBC dramas Hustle and Spooks.

The production is being staged at St. Peter's Church, Northchurch Terrace, N1 4DA on Tuesday 12th November at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £15, £10 unwaged, and are available now from the De Beauvoir Association's website. Or call 020 7684 5811.
