Bienvenue, Parvenü!
Art – Citizens – Love. Scenes and music from „The Middle Class Gentleman“ by Lully and Molière.

What ist art? And why is it actually?
And if it has to be, which is the best one? The only real one? The latest trend?
Is it to dance, to play music, to play theatre, to philosophize or maybe the good old art of fencing?

Young singers and musicians on period instruments meet young actors reciting old texts, to reflect while playing music and theatre. Looking for something new.
