Having triumphed with this piece for several months, Fabrice Luchini presents his latest show, La Fontaine et le Confinement, on his only tour date in France, on stage at the Opéra Royal of the Château de Versailles.
An unmissable event!
“During the year of lockdown, I worked (modestly) on three great authors: Jean de la Fontaine, Blaise Pascal and Charles Baudelaire. I was so fascinated by them that I decided to create a show, La Fontaine et le Confinement (The Fountain and Lockdown).” Fabrice Luchini
Relating to current events, the texts are introduced by anecdotes of Luchini’s experiences during lockdown.
Reviews are unanimous:
“The chatty genius makes us fall into a divine silence.” Télérama
“The actor offers up a dazzling reading of the author of Fables.” Le Figaro
“The audience hangs off his every word, listening so intently that one can almost hear the midge from the fable.” Au Balcon
“He takes to the stage, performs a text, intersperses it with improvisations and enters into an impressive communion with the audience every evening. Now that’s what you call theatre.” Le Figaro
