The Aveugles by Maeterlinck, Concile féerique by Jules Laforgue, and Cantique des Cantiques by Roinard, with orchestration, light show and "odor show" (the programme notes explain the concordance of sounds, the human voice, colors and perfumes). Théodat (by Remy de Gourmont] is also performed."[1]-- La boule de vermeil (1907) by Pierre de Querlon
