    This timeless comedy of manners is considered one of Molière’s most probing and mature works. While it’s still an exemplar of 16th-century farce, Molière went beyond his usual comic inventiveness to create a world of rich, complex characters, especially in the cynical title character Alceste, played here by the Tony Award-winning actor Brian Bedford.

    In this biting comedy of errors, the hapless Arnolphe is undone by his own double dealing and double standards. The School for Wives was first performed at the Palais Royal theatre on December 26, 1662, and is considered by many to be Moliere's masterpiece. Richard Wilbur's subtle verse translation illuminates the great master of comedy at his wittiest.

    Razor-sharp wit inflames a competitive game of survival in the salons of 17th century France where, in this world of "finest appearances," one man's blunt honesty shatters his society's delicate web of manners. Often considered to be Moliere's Hamlet, this is a wickedly scathing satire.

    Le notaire procéda solennellement à la lecture du contrat. Quand tous eurent signé, on déboucha les bouteilles et on but, abondamment, à la gloire de Madeleine et à la prospérité de la nouvelle troupe. "Nous la nommons l'Illustre Théâtre", dit Beys, lyrique. "À l'heureux destin de l'Illustre Théâtre !", reprit-on en trinquant une fois de plus. Madeleine et Jean-Baptiste choquaient leur verre avec une secrète solennité : ce contrat, c'était un peu leurs épousailles.

    Monsieur Jourdain est un commerçant qui a fait fortune dans les perruques. Il décide de vivre "en homme de qualité"' et ouvre sa maison aux arts et aux lettres... Cette comédie-ballet consacre l'image d'Epinal de l'arriviste, dont Molière moque allègrement la fatuité et l'ignorance. Le titre donné à la pièce est révélateur. Il nous apprend que pour Molière le sujet de l'œuvre, c'est M. Jourdain et sa propension vaniteuse à gagner une classe sociale qui n'est pas la sienne.

    Le XVIIe siècle est un siècle majeur pour la langue et la littérature française. Poésie et théâtre se développent avec force, le classicisme s'impose avec un nombre de chefs d'œuvre rarement atteint tandis que le roman naît et s'épanouit parallèlement aux productions des moralistes et des fabulistes : rarement époque aura produit autant de grands écrivains, dont la marque est indélébile dans l'ensemble de la culture.
