Le Phénix ou Le Coffret de cristal

MEL 1908

The Cristal Casket

A juggler, clothed in an elaborate costume of the time of Henry III, makes some passes with a playing die and forces it to increase to huge dimensions while between his hands. He puts it upon a table which has no connections whatsoever with the floor. The four sides of the […] reveal a bunch of flowers which, in turn, are seen to separate and to give forth a ravishing fairy. The noble lord seizes her, wraps her in a veil and shuts her up in a crystal casket. He sets it afire; the fairy is rapidly consumed by the flames, yet she is revivified more beautiful than ever. The personages salute the audience and withdraw, followed by the die which goes rolling after.
