Paul Dukas (1865-1935) is a formidable figure in early twentieth-century French music, yet little recent scholarship has properly recognised his importance. To remedy this situation this dissertation explores Paul Dukas's last large-scale work La Peri, poeme danse (composed in 1911), with the specific aim of revealing ways in which musical multimedia correspond in order to express the scenario in a balletic context.
