AC/E supports the participation of Monsieur Croche with the spectacle "Els somnis del compositor Claude Debussy" and the Companyia del príncep Totilau.

"Els somnis del compositor Claude Debussy"  is a puppet show for children based on Claude Debussy’s piano music. Monsieur Croche tells the story of an imaginary dream where the composer Claude Debussy and his wife Emma Bardac travel to a fantasy island. There they will find a magic world inhabitated by sirens, exotic birds, big insects and other enchanted beings that will bring inspiration to Debussy to write new musical songs. Based on this experience, the couple then goes back to Belle Époque Paris, where Debussy publicizes his music throughout the world and throughout the years.
