Misia Sert ' Queen of Paris '

Misia Sert ' Queen of Paris '

With Hélène Couvert (Piano) and Julie Depardieu (narrator)

Actress Julie Depardieu, flutist Juliette Hurel and pianist Hélène Couvert take us on a journey of discovery of Misia Sert, who was for more than 40 years the muse of the greatest artists, from Bonnard and Renoir to Diaghilev and Cocteau, including Ravel, Debussy and Stravinsky. 

She made Fauré cry when she announced her engagement, Satie dedicated Morceaux en forme de poire to her, Ravel, La Valse, and, to thank her for her support, Stravinsky gave her an annotated score of Sacre du Printemps

The young writer Baptiste Rossi has written a special text that describes Misia's fate and the anecdotes surrounding her musical life. They will be illustrated by pages of Ravel, Debussy, Stravinsky, Fauré, Satie...
