Presentation

The Bourgeois gentilhomme, Molière and Lully’s colourful masterpiece, returns to the Royal Opera of Versailles in a new production!

In this comedy-ballet performed before Louis XI, the two Jean-Baptistes trace an acid and farcical portrait of a character that the court can only mock: a bourgeois aping court manners…He is soon caught up in his own trap, all his schemes fail as soon as they have been set up and the arranged marriage he wants to impose on his daughter turns into Turkish ceremony that has forever marked the history of theatre!

But make no mistake: Monsieur Jourdain is such a successful caricature of the courtiers of his time, that they end up laughing as much at their own idiosyncrasies as at his…His music and theatre masters, so close to the king, give the latter the occasion to laugh at all the decorum perfectly orchestrated around and by him. The power of this work remains intact today, because Molière’s skillful writing makes us hang on the bourgeois’ every word, whether he improvises himself as an interpreter of Turkish or discovers the marvels of vowels and consonants…

Jérôme Deschamps indulgently embarks on this adventure and inspires his actors to reveal the comic and tragic depths of this monument of theatre and propel it to absurdity. "All that is prose is not verse; and all that is verse is not prose!"

Production: Compagnie Jérôme Deschamps,
Coproductions: Printemps des Comédiens, Opéra Comique, Château de Versailles Spectacles, Musiciens du Louvre, Théâtre de Caen, Célestins – Théâtre de Lyon, MC2 Grenoble.
