Working on Molière's Bourgeois gentilhomme : working sessions( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in French and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On November 10, 2004, Molière's Bourgeois Gentilhomme was produced in Paris, at the Trianon. In this documentary, you can follow the actors' work on diction and their effort to recreate the language and declamation style of the 17th century. The Bourgeois Gentilhomme was originally a command by King Louis XIV to Molière and Lully. The playwright and the composer were asked to compose a true and intelligent "comédie-ballet". In 1670, they presented a timeless masterpiece. Molière was an expert both in human psychology and in creating hilarious situations in which the characters are all caught. In this play, he playfully mixes several genres: the buffoonery, the salacious and the satire. The troop presented in the documentary is very coherent and embodies perfectly the type characters in the Bourgeois Gentilhomme. Lully's music comes to refine the portraits drawn by the writer and reinforces the comical side of this fantastic comedy
The children of Molière and Lully( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in French and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On October 14th 1670 in Chambord, the "Turquerie" desired by Louis XIV under the Court of France denotes the culmination of a genre that preludes and sets the standards to the future of french opera: lyrical tragedy. It also represents the peak of the collaboration between Molière and Lully, who together have managed to combine theatrical comedy with the entertainment of dance and vocals. Martin Fraudereau's documentary, filmed during the 2004 Utrecht Summer Festival, analyses all aspects of the reproduction of Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme. Here the dancers learn to blend in the musical drama, while singers and musicians must incorporate the notions of gesture, pose and movement; under the watchful eye of Benjamin Lazar, all must master the diction of old French Baroque. The succcess of the atypical production of the French masterpiece, half delirious, half enigmatic, is an indicator of the renewed popularity for the Baroque era. Conductor Vincent Dumestre, stage director Benjamin Lazar and choreographer Cécile Roussat form an energetic and intense creative combination. The 52-min documentary has won numerous prize, including the Grand Prix Louis Lumière during the 2005 Creusot festival

La célébrité des Chevaux de Marly tient à leur valeur artistique autant qu'à l'histoire, qui les fit se retrouver successivement en trois lieux prestigieux ; la résidence royale de Marly, la place de la Concorde, le musée du Louvre.

A quarante ans d'intervalle, deux sculpteurs, oncle et neveu, Antoine Coysevox et Guillaume Coustou, reçoivent, pour un même lieu, le château de Marly, une commande royale similaire
