Les Enfants Terribles (1996)

Dancers and singers share the stage in Les Enfants Terribles, based on the novel by Jean Cocteau and adapted for the stage by composer Philip Glass and Susan Marshall. Les Enfants Terribles is the story of Paul and Lise, a brother and sister so caught up in a world of their own imaginings that they can no longer see a reality beyond their "game". The singers and dancers alternately portray the action.
