Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme

T0675851550
In 1670 Louis XIV and his court were much amused by the language and manners of a Turkish delegation, and subsequently the king asked Moliere and Lully to create 'something Turkish' for a performance at the Chateau de Chambord. Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme was the result. This is an enchanting piece of entertainment which couples Moliere's wit with Lully's music and song.
Author Moliere
Music Lully

Production details

Not for the easily offended, this Blackadder-style tale of the mishaps of a social climber in 17th century France is sure - to keep you laughing. With full supporting cast of flunkeys, singers, dancers and musicians - playing music adapted from Lully's original score, you're bound to get your money's worth. Good, not-so-clean fun to chase away the winter blues. (Not recommended for young children)
