Debussy’s L’enfant Prodigue is a staged cantata by Claude Debussy with text by Édouard Guinand that runs approximately 45 minutes.
This classic parable still resonates with us today. In an increasingly isolating and individualistic society, we are confronted by our own passive vilification of people who have fallen through the cracks. The drive to succeed and express our identity comes at a cost. Humanisation and community are the remedy,
The cantata is to be directed by Lucy Scott and conducted by Luke Spicer. The work will be played by a chamber orchestra accompanied by soprano Ayşe Göknur Shanal, tenor Joel Scott and baritone Andrew Williams. The piece runs for forty five minutes.
