An article I wrote for Vulpes Libris to commemorate the anniversary of the death of Raymond Radiguet. Radiguet provided the model of ‘The Loved One’ in our opera When The Flame Dies.
The French poet and novelist Raymond Radiguet died today 90 years ago. The character of ‘The Loved One’ in When the Flame Dies is based on Radiguet, so to commemorate his death, here’s the moment in our opera when he comes back to life. The singer is counter tenor Andrew Radley.
