La Boîte à joujoux : ballet pour enfants
Conceived for his daughter Emma, Claude Debussy's final masterpiece, The Toy-Box (La boîte à joujoux) offers a poignant look back at the composer's favorite musical things. The scenario was written and gorgeously illustrated in watercolor by André Hellé, a prominent children's writer. He proposed that toy-boxes are "really just like towns in which toys live like people - or maybe towns are really just toy-boxes in which people live like toys.".
