Superb adaptation of "L’Avare" ("The Miser") in the commedia dell’arte style with singing, dancing, pantomime, incidental music, asides to the audience, and improvisations. While ignoring the wants and needs of all those around him, even his own children, the wealthy Harpagon believes he can purchase conjugal bliss for his dotage. But in a typically Molière-esque twist, his plans are ruined and his only consolation is buried in a box... The cast and audience have huge fun with the roles of Harpagon, Frosine, Valère, all colourful characters, illustrating timeless themes including money, intolerance, limitless profit, the loss of human relationships, sexism, and more. All the modernity of Molière is concentrated in this classic play.
