DEBUSSY Claude (1862-1918)

L.A.S. "Claude Debussy", June 3, 1915, to Pierre CHÉREAU, at the Théâtre national de l'Opéra-Comique; 1 page in-12, address on the back.

On singers, including Claire CROIZA, whom he had in mind for the role of Geneviève in Pelléas et Mélisande.

"Mademoiselle MONTÉS passed a very good exam, and was received with flying colours. Her very real qualities assured her of this without the need for recommendations.

So give her the advice to choose a slightly less dilapidated scene than the one she chose in Le Trouvère! It seems to me that her dramatic temperament can show itself more strongly. As for Mademoiselle CROIZA, I think she knows, musically, the role of Geneviève. In any case, I intend to work on her myself. Besides, she is a real artist for whom this role is not much. Yet she will know how to put it in its true place "...
