As the thunderclouds of the Great War pile up and burst, the musical revolutionary Claude Debussy and his one-time follower Maurice Ravel compete for the love of their proud, fickle, darling, Paris. The Judgment of Paris is a mix of cabaret, history and story-telling with timeless music by Debussy and Ravel, as well as original songs by the performers. It is new and old, heroic and tragic, history and fiction – and may the best composer win.

“…beautiful arrangements of works by both composers as well as evocative new compositions
riffing on themes in their life and music.” – NOW Magazine

“They are an engaging company that is able to address the topics of love, war, history, art and beauty in such a way as to make light of them without being flip. I was entertained and moved as well as educated.”
– Emily Hanlon, Ottawa Chamberfest
