This timeless comedy of manners is considered one of Molière’s most probing and mature works. While it’s still an exemplar of 16th century farce, Molière went beyond his usual comic inventiveness to create a world of rich, complex characters, especially in the cynical title character Alceste, played here by the Tony® Award-winning actor Brian Bedford. Translated by Richard Wilbur.

Includes an interview with Larry F. Norman, author of The Public Mirror: Molière and the Social Commerce of Depiction.

Recorded at The Invisible Studios, West Hollywood in June of 2012.

Lead funding for The Misanthrope was made possible with support from the Sidney E. Frank Foundation.
