Who was Georges Neveux?

Georges Neveux was a French dramatist and poet.

Neveux's first notable work was the play Juliette ou la clé des songes, written in 1927 and produced in 1930. It became the basis of Theodor Schaefer's melodrama Julie aneb Snar for piano, jazz instruments, and small orchestra, from 1934, Bohuslav Martinů's opera, Julietta, from 1937, and for the 1951 film Juliette, or Key of Dreams.

During the 1930s, when he was general secretary of the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, he wrote little. In 1943 appeared Le Voyage de Thésée, which was also later adapted by Martinů as an opera. In 1945 he translated and adapted Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Neveux also wrote numerous filmscripts, although he greatly preferred the theatre; as he said, 'the first because one must earn a living, the second because one must deserve to live'.
