Maurice Maeterlinck had a great influence on 20th-century European drama.
His symbolist plays, so rich in atmosphere and feeling, were also the basis of works by Debussy, Schoenberg, Faure and Sibelius, all to be heard in this week's Proms.
Professor Katherine Worth , author of Maeterlinck's Plays in Performance, discusses the changing fortunes of this extraordinary playwright with Timberlake Wertenbaker , translator of tomorrow's
Radio 3 production of the play.
