19:00 Amphitryon
Theatre production. Comedy in 3 acts, 120 min. Author: Molière. Director: Christophe Rauck. Subtitles available in French and Russian. Molière’s Amphitryon is an adaptation of the play by the ancient Roman playwright Plautus, which told the story of god Jupiter, who drove military commander Amphitryon almost mad, when he appeared in front of Amphitrion’s wife Alcmena in the guise of her husband, and slept with her, the result of which was the birth of future hero Hercules. Molière’s play was written at the time, when the French king Louis XIV was in the middle of his affair with Marquise de Montespan, whose husband was thrown for the time being to the Bastille, so as not to be in the way. The play was usually performed as a lilting comedy about adultery. Molière’s Amphitryon is the first stage production done at the Fomenko Workshop Theater in collaboration with a guest foreign director.
