Molière and the King

92 min

Available until 01/09/2024

Celebrating the 400th anniversary of his birth, a look at the work of perhaps the greatest playwright in the French language. Molière revolutionised the theatre by bringing to the stage, with lucidity and a dazzling modernity, the issues of his time

The writer and actor had a special relationship with Louis XIV, the dazzling Sun King, who allowed him to develop as an artist and used Moliere, like other artists, to magnify his personal glory.
