ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In August 1661, Louis XIV’s Superintendent-General asked Moliere and his company, Palais Royal, for an entertainment to be performed at his mansion for the king and his court. Not only did Fouquet ask for a play from Moliere but that it include a dance by Beauchamp, a tableaux by Le Brun and stage devices by Tortelli; all to be ready within two weeks. Moliere borrowed a plot from an Italian farce where two lovers are to meet for an assignation. In Les Facheux Orphise's Uncle and guardian, Damis, disapproves of her lover Eraste. So the two lovers agree to meet and a medley of Bores (characters one might meet at court) come across the male lover’s path to delay him. In the end Eraste saves Damis from robbers which prompts Damis to bless the two lovers. Pierre Beauchamp composes the music and dances and performs in one of them. Lully contributes a courante which Moliere turns into a comic scene between the male lover and a dancing master. Its first performance met with great success. The opening tableaux; a garden with statues, fountains, dryads, satyrs and an enormous shell which opens reveals a naiad who addresses the king and asks him to command the scene to move upon which statues turn and woodland spirits begin to dance. The play follows with pantomimes and dances concluding each act. The king himself so impressed suggested a new Bore to Moliere, a hunter with the arcane language of the hunt, which Moliere included in the next performance at Versailles in November.
