Le Bourgeois gentilhomme (French pronunciation: ​[lə buʁʒwa ʒɑ̃tijɔm], The Bourgeois Gentleman or The Middle-Class Aristocrat or The Would-Be Noble) is a five-act comédie-ballet—a play intermingled with music, dance and singing—written by Molière, first presented on 14 October 1670 before the court of Louis XIV at the Château of Chambord by Molière's troupe of actors. Subsequent public performances were given at the theatre of the Palais-Royal beginning on 23 November 1670. The music was composed by Jean-Baptiste Lully, the choreography was by Pierre Beauchamp, the sets were by Carlo Vigarani and the costumes were done by the chevalier d’Arvieux.

Le Concert Des Nations, Jordi Savall ‎(conductor) Flute - M. Hantaï, Percussion – P. Estevan, Theorbo – R. Lislevand, Viola da Gamba – J. Savall Jean-Baptiste Lully ( 28 November 1632 – 22 March 1687) was an Italian-born French composer, instrumentalist, and dancer who spent most of his life working in the court of Louis XIV of France. He is considered a master of the French baroque style. Lully disavowed any Italian influence in French music of the period. From 1662 he completely controlled French court music and his style of composition was imitated throughout Europe.

LE BOURGEOIS GENTILHOMME - LULLY+MOLIÈRE con testo francese e italiano

Siamo alle solite: mancano nel DVD i sottotitoli in italiano! Eppure ITALIANO era Jean-Baptiste Lully, anzi GIOVANNI BATTISTA LULLI (Firenze, 1632, Parigi, 1687), il genio innovatore della musica a cui la Francia deve la creazione di un suo teatro musicale, originale nel panorama europeo rispetto a quello, ironia della sorte, di influsso italiano. E Molière? Figlio della Commedia dell’Arte ITALIANA, contribuì a portarla in Francia (dove è sopravvissuta con alterna fortuna fino ai nostri giorni). Tanta parte ce n’è anche in questa commedia. L’ITALIA è rappresentata nel balletto finale, il Balletto delle Nazioni… Eppure i sottotoli in italiano, ancora una volta, sono colpevolmente omessi… (Verrebbe da dire:”‘Aridatece’ la Gioconda!”) Ma questa commedia è strepitosa, assolutamente imperdibile, così ho pensato di apporre io la traduzione in italiano a fronte del testo originale. Je tiens à saluer et remercier tout spécialement juliecartedutendre, qui m'a fait découvrir le Mois Molière.
