This chapter is a collaborative exploration of Nadia Boulanger’s work in collaborative composition. Newly released documents provide unprecedented insights into Boulanger’s musical and personal relationship with Raoul Pugno. Reading these against the music of their opera La ville morte illuminates both Boulanger’s creative aspirations and the personal and societal obstacles to achieving them. This chapter provides a new reading of the genesis and content of La ville morte and explores how gender discourses affected Boulanger’s development and output as a woman composer in early twentieth-century France.

Keywords:   Nadia Boulanger, Raoul Pugno, Gabriele D'Annunzio, La ville morte, women composers, collaborative composition
