In the early 20th century, composer Erik Satie assembled a group of young musicians who rebelled against the music of Wagner and Debussy. Known as "Les Six," the avant-garde composers collaborated with the poet Jean Cocteau to present a highly successful theater program that became the rage of Parisian artistic circles in the 1920s.
