"Following the resounding success of Evocations, Jacques Rouché, then director of the Théâtre des Arts, asked Roussel to write the ballet score Le festin de l'araignée (1913). This was so successful that Rouché, newly appointed director of the Opéra, next commissioned an opera from Roussel to inaugurate his term of office there... Though he was touched by the successive waves of impressionism and neo-classicism in French music, [Roussel] was an independent figure, his music harmonically spiced and rhythmically vigorous."
