KIRKUS REVIEW

Like Pierrot (1967, p. 952, J-328), which you might be forgiven for having forgotten, The Great Feast--actually Violetta's wedding day from cockcrow to owl-watch--is simply the occasion for elaborate full-color friezes. Lavishly provisioned and patterned, these display preparations in wine cellar and kitchen, the wedding procession, the banquet, the ball--interspersed with the antics of twins Nanette and Babette, the sisters of the bride. Correlates: Franz Lehar for gemutlichkeit, Henrich Hoffmann for mischief, the fauves for composition and color. But it's not all that important--say, a puff pastry, a matter of what you find in it.
