'Pierrot' Debussy

Part of song cycle ‘Quatre chansons de jeunesse’ it’s about mime artist, you guessed it...Pierrot.

Good old Pierrot, watched by the crowd,
Having done with Harlequin’s wedding,
Drifts dreamily along the boulevard of the Temple.
A girl in a flowing blouse
Vainly leads him on with her teasing eyes;
And meanwhile, mysterious and sleek,
Cherishing him above all else,
The white moon with horns like a bull
Ogles her friend
Jean Gaspard Deburau.

Text by Richard Stokes from Oxford Lieder.
