Présentation

Convinced that he is suffering from a thousand illnesses, Argan imposes his authority and issues orders like the diktats of a dying man. Around him, Béline, his second wife, hurries to the old man’s side, who seems to be on the point of dying, along with many doctors wanting to perform a multitude of examinations and pseudo remedies to please their rich patient. But, there is also the malicious Toinette, who sees through the ‘courtiers’ games and Angélique, the daughter in love with Cléante, who has decided to defy her father’s wish.

Molière’s last play is a comic ballet which oscillates beautifully between an extravagant farce and a twilight drama. And remembering that Molière played Argan on the day of his death, you will enjoy some tasty lines even more. Michel Didym achieves a wonderful scenographic harmony, where classicism is coloured by the dynamic performance of the actors and the highly appropriate musical score which has a few surprises in store. A perfect remedy against antidepressants and modern burnouts!
