By September of this year Madame Helen Bacque intends to improve her dance technique sufficiently to choreograph a ballet she has had in mind for some time, entitled The Judgement of Paris.
Madame Bacque is seeking a talented musician who has (or will have) sufficient skill to compose the music for such a work at that time.
Any interested parties should contact her privately.
[OOC: Helen will have Dancing 7 by September - so no chance of any negatives attaching to the work - and seeks someone with Music 5+ who might be interested in collaborating to write the ballet detailed above. If there are any particularly skilled Musicians out there (Music 7+) Helen also has Admin 6 and would be interested in collaborating on Operas. ]
Providing you do not mind a martial element to your music, I may be able to assist in the realization of your idea for the ballet. Subject of course to my return from the Front with my shield and a heavy purse! While I intend to develop my legal skills for the betterment of Society, I have an interest in the Arts as well, and would like to prove myself more than just a specialist in the Law.
Guillaume Fitzbraose Captain, Picardy Musketeers
(OOC - I have Admin 6 and Music 5 (but only Dancing 3) - but need to vanish to the Front to obtain funds, for at least one season, and probably two)
Le Maison de Gorne For the personal attention of Madame Viscomtess Helen Gorne
First of all: Please allow me to thank you for the kind invitation to the wonderful play, which was a great experience for me. I have only seen the rough and ready performance of the markets before and this is so much more enticing. I will remember the bravery of the soldiers whenever I meet one in the future.
Secondly, I must apologize for the absence of my fellow Breton, who has laid down his life for France.
Last, but not least I must now show myself daring enough to propose myself as the assistant you seek for the ancient tale you want to perform as a dance. At least give me a chance to try my hand in such an enterprise
I'm so glad that you enjoyed Hold Until Relieved. The Theatre Royale is indeed an impressive venue. Did you enjoy the hospitality of Dr de Mande afterwards?
I would indeed welcome the opportunity to collaborate in writing a ballet. Although I have secured the music for my Judgement of Paris project, I would like to follow this up with a piece called The Fall of Troy so as to continue the story. Given the recent momentous events, however, I doubt that I will be free to work on this until December. Perhaps we might 'pencil in' a December week in which to make a start?
In the meantime, if you plan to attend the funeral of His Majesty King Louis at the beginning of October perhaps you might care to travel in my coach in order that we might have a preliminary discussion of the work? If the subject interests you I would be happy to advance you your share of the expected acceptance fee at that point, in anticipation of a successful result.
It will be a considerable pleasure to spend even a brief time in your company. To be able to be rewarded financially for what is also a work of pleasure, is a double joy.
If your Coachman will be at my humble abode in due time, I will be available for a preliminary discission of such a cooperation. Note however that my coach will bring a young lady I have recently met me for the ceremony at the cathedral.
