Texts by Jean de la Fontaine said by Christine Bayle. Music viola da gamba Marianne Muller
“Young Love” at the Château de La Ballue
We are happy to inform you of the coming to the Château de La Ballue of the musical show “Le jeune Amour” in two humorous, dramatic and tasty tales by Jean de La Fontaine : “La Matrone d’Ephèse” and “La Courtisane amoureuse”.
The two artists of the first Baroque movement, Christine Bayle, actress, and Marianne Muller on the viola da gamba, stimulate the scabrous situations, with subtleties and allusions to “La Matrone d’Ephèse” and “La Courtisane amoureuse” in intertwining the texts with the music of Ste Colombe, Marin Marais, Hume, De Machy, Dubuisson, Abel, and a piece by a talented contemporary composer, Bruno Giner.
In a gallant and ironic tone, La Fontaine scratches our certainties, promises and ready-made truths, and in doing so joins the discreet but present project of his friend Molière, to improve the human race. The choice fell on two dramatic love stories, the two tales by Jean de la Fontaine. We know the Fables well, much less the Tales, which are real news with action, suspense, and twist…
Show accessible on reservation, in the salons of the château de la Ballue.
