Les Precieuses RidiculesStreaming Video - 2005
Gorgibus, a provincial bourgeois, moves to Paris in the hopes of marrying his daughter and niece to a pair of young men of good families. Unfortunately, Magdelon and Cathos, enamored of the affectations of Parisian society, reject their suitors for lacking the flamboyant manners they so adore. In retaliation, the suitors pass off their valets as highly fashionable noblemen, who succeed in infatuating the snobbish young ladies-and when the subterfuge is revealed, their mortification is complete. This play was Moliere's first comedy of manners. Directed by Georges Bensoussan.
