One of the most awaited events of the
The comedy in this performance often turns into farce scenes, but it is not street farce, but royal farce. Ballet intermezzo which remind us more of Brecht than of Palais Royal Court Theatre go hand in hand with Moliere’s personal drama, as the great playwright died on stage, playing the Imaginary Invalid. This is a performance not only about human vices, but about the art of theatre itself, about the sacrifice each artist is to bring.
