In French with English subtitles
Harpagon, a rich widower, is obsessed with money. His avarice gets in the way of his two children’s romantic plans: Élise is in love with Valère, a Neapolitan gentleman in her father’s service as a steward, and Cléante wishes to marry Mariane, a young orphan with no fortune. When he learns that his son is his rival for the beautiful Mariane and that a box of gold has been stolen from him, his fury knows no bounds, leaving his entire family astonished at his behaviour…
From Harpagon’s unhealthy stinginess to the ardour of a frustrated youth, this production by Lilo Baur brings out all the shades of a cult – and surprisingly modern – comedy.
