Jan Englert stages a classic play by Molière.
At its premiere in 1666, the play was regarded as a satire on Paris salons with their snobbery and hypocrisy. Above all, however, Molière poses a universal question about the meaning of the title character's attitude. What is Alcest's misanthropy: an uncompromising commitment to the truth or a doomed uprising against social conventions? Can love cure misanthropy?
