March 8 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
“The Misanthrope or the Cantankerous Lover” by Molière with Lambert Wilson, Jean-Pierre Malo, Hervé Briaux, Brigitte Catillon, Manon Combes, Pauline Cheviller, Paul Minthe, Léo Dussollier, Patrick Dozier, Jean-François Lapalus and Dimitri Viau on Sunday 8 March 2020, at 5 pm Grimaldi Forum Monaco.
Should we flee the objects of our hatred, and retreat from the world? Or have we no choice but to live among our fellows? Molière penned The Misanthrope “or the Cantankerous Lover” with a deep rebellious fervor. His play is a tirade against treason, and courtiers with the power to make or break reputations. By juxtaposing the vanity of the world with the absolute love of Alceste (Lambert Wilson) for Célimène, Molière expresses a timeless intransigence and idealism, in a play described by his contemporaries as “the portrait of the century”. A true masterpiece.
