New adaptation by Peppe Servillo

Le Bourgeois gentilhomme is one of the most successful comedies by Moliere. It is a biting satire of the nouveaux riches who behave like lords with ridiculous results, and of the mannered habits of Louis XIV court.
Servillo personally adapted the play choosing his role of voice, main and other leading characters. From the exchange between words and music comes out a tale of scholary illusions which is supported by an entertaining music which plays with quotations from Verdi to Wagner. Music is brilliantly played by ‘
Ensemble Berlin, composed by the musicians of the Berliner Philharmoniker chamber orchestra. The main character ideal ambition of elegance is evident in the graciuos dancing rythms.
