Le Mois Molière 2010


Some of you might remember that June is Molière month in Versailles: a series of theatrical events commemorating the great playwright. Most shop windows sport these lovely commedia dell'arte stickers to advertise for the event. To see last year's posts, click on the label below and for this year's edition, info is this way (in French).

Juin est le Mois Molière, avec toute une série de représentations en divers endroits de Versailles, d'où ces autocollants qui ont fleuri sur les vitrines. Toutes les infos se trouvent par ici.

Did Molière write in the commedia dell'arte style? I should be more familiar with his work. I've seen a bunch of productions of The Imaginary Invalid (including one in heavy Scottish dialect - bizarre) and walked by his tomb in Père Lachaise Cemetery but I don't know a lot of his plays.

How cool is that??!! It would be really neat to walk down the the street and see different images in the windows.

I love the window stickers. Sounds like a good month to be in Versailles.

I like the first picture. I would like one of those stickers.

June may be the month for theatre but here it is Strawberry month. Many Strawberry farms in the valley.

Today the sun ALMOST shone. MB

Cette semaine a lieu tous les ans ? Il s'en passe de drôles à Versailles (qui ne s'accapare plus tous les personnages qui comptent, de nos jours) : Ciel chine pour s'équiper en verres à bière et elle va sur un manège démocratique sans carrosse (j'aime bien la dynamique de la photo dans le virage)...

composition de la vitrine excellent: tu nous donne le gout de Molière.

Curieusement, les decos présentées me font plus penser à la Comedia dell'arte italienne qu'à Molière.. Je chicane, mais c'est toujours du theatre, divertissant qui plus est, et l'initiative est à saluer. J'espère que pourras aller voir quelques spectacles!

I didn't know that and it is very interesting and a bit funny.

I hope you are enjoying the festivities!

Your recent posts have been wonderful, Ciel. I hope to catch up on my reading soon.

Hope your summer is going well.

It looks and sounds like a great time!

Who's Moliere?

And no, I had not heard about a Moliere month in Versailles...but I did see your posts last year. Problem is I can't remember much. And the more I learn, the more I know; but the more I know the more I forget. It's a vicious circle.

Lot's of clowning around in Versailles this June, I think.

After our long winters, June is not a great month for theater-going around here but come autumn we'll gladly flock around theaters again. Hardly a season goes by for our major scenes without at least one of Moliere's plays being staged again.

Suzanne said...

Honestly Ciel, you're making me want to make a trip to Versailles.

What a great tradition. I hope we'll see more, although June is 2/3 over.
