Paul Dukas wrote his symphonic poem "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" in 1897. The story tells of an old sorcerer who goes out leaving his apprentice with chores to perform in his workshop. The apprentice gets tired of fetching water and casts a spell on a broomstick to do the work for him, using magic he has not yet fully learned. Soon, however, the workshop is awash with water, as he realises that he cannot stop the broom because he does not know the magic word to make it stop. Hetries to destroy the the broom with an axe, but each piece of the broom becomes a whole new one, and each continues fetching water, now faster than ever. When all is apparently doomed in a massive flood, the sorcerer returns, breaks the spell and saves the day.
