    1. Jean Baptiste Poquelin, better known as Molière visited Madrid for three days. And he did so led by the hand, I should say the baton, of William Christie.And what a visit it was! Almost straight from Versailles where this production was first staged , it came not to the Royal Palace of El Escorial, but to a more democratic venue in a theatre in the center of Madrid. Molière would have approved even if this comédie-ballet was produced for the very regal Louis XIV and first represented in 1669 [...]

    2. OMG, Moliere you long-haired hottie, if you would just shave that moustacheBallet, music, singing, AND drag! What doesn't this play have? The one BIG drawback in the public domain PDF I read was the translation of the French country bumpkins accents into unrecognizable English; the Swiss characters were only a LITTLE easier: I just got the gist of the scenes. It's fair for the French to malign the FrenchI just wish I didn't have to read what looked like some of Faulkner.
