This lyrical comedy consists of nine short scenes with seven alternating musical compositions involving the Baron Medusa, his daughter Frisette, her young suitor Astolpho, the Baron's recalcitrant valet Polycarpe and a dancing mechanical monkey named Jonas. The Surrealist play juxtaposes music, text and movement and is considered to be a precursor to Dadaism.
