Is it possible to mould the perfect wife?

What lessons can a 17th century School for Wives teach us today? Much, as this acclaimed modern production of one of the great French satirist Molière’s finest comedies eloquently demonstrates. Interpreted by Stéphane Braunschweig, a translator, author, and director of both theatre and opera, and performed by the 200-year-old Odéon-Théâtre de l'Europe, Molière’s acerbic examination of the sexual politics of his own age emerges as resoundingly relevant to ours. It also remains as coruscatingly funny as when it was first performed in 1662. Suzanne Aubert charms as the ingénue Agnès, while Claude Duparfait revels in the irresistibly comic role of the inept schemer Arnolphe.
