Les Femmes Savantes originally premiered in 1672 and this version shows how little has changed when it comes to family dynamics, romance and artistic rivalry. Set in the present day, this is the “Real Housewives of Paris,” celebrating a ladies’
night-in, complete with fitness instructors, wine tastings, pompous poetry readings, posers and spa treatments, all in rhyming couplets originally written by Molière, as translated by Richard Wilbur.
