Psyche

MOLIÈRE (1622 - 1673), translated by Charles Heron WALL (1836 - 1905)

This is a very different Moliere, not the usual satire of everyday life. It is instead a classical tale based on the ancient story of Psyche and Cupid, and was performed for Louis XIV with ballet interludes to music by Jean-Baptiste Lully (which we do not include here) in 1671. - Summary by ToddHW
