Monsieur Jourdain is a rich bourgeois whose obsession is to belong to the nobility. To achieve this goal, he tries to acquire the manners of the gentry by taking many private lessons (music, dance, fencing, philosophy). He refuses to give his daughter in marriage to the young man she loves because he is not noble. But he changes his mind when the latter disguises himself as a “great Turk” and offers to raise Monsieur Jourdain to the dignified status of “Mamamouchi” in exchange for his daughter’s hand in marriage…

In the great tradition of comedy-ballets, directors Valérie Lesort and Christian Hecq stage Molière’s famous Bourgeois Gentleman with music and dance. They put all their imagination into exposing the excesses of Monsieur Jourdain, who dreams of nobility without paying heed to ridicule.

Playwright: Molière
Director: Valérie Lesort & Christian Hecq
