It is often forgotten, but Molière’s first steps in the theatre were as an actor. Who better than a writer, a real one like Pierre Senges, to tell the story of the early life of a man who was then still known as Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, from his decisive encounter with a theatre troupe, to the adoption of his famous stage name? From the very first pages, humour and inventiveness serve to underscore the young actor’s creative genius. Set to music by Arnaud Marzorati, his company Les Lunaisiens and the Maîtrise de Versailles, Molière, his majesty the actor will delight all ages. Serge Bloch’s poetic style makes this CD-book set a superb tribute to the great French playwright on the occasion of the 400th anniversary of his birth.
