Description

This timeless comedy of manners is considered one of Moli re's most probing and mature works. While it's still an exemplar of 16th century farce, Moli re went beyond his usual comic inventiveness to create a world of rich, complex characters, especially in the cynical title character Alceste, played here by the Tony Award-winning actor Brian Bedford. Lead funding for this production is provided by the Sidney E. Frank Foundation. This recording also includes an interview with Larry F. Norman author of "The Public Mirror: Moli re and the Social Commerce of Depiction."show more
