A detailed introduction to Molière and his plays, this Companion evokes his own theatrical career, his theatres, patrons, the performers and theatre staff with whom he worked, and the various publics he and his troupes entertained with such success. It looks at his particular brands of comedy and satire. L'École des femmes, Le Tartuffe, Dom Juan, Le Misanthrope, L'Avare and Les Femmes savantes are examined from a variety of different viewpoints, and through the eyes of different ages and cultures. The comedies-ballets, a genre invented by Molière and his collaborators, are re-instated to the central position which they held in his œuvre in Molière's own lifetime; his two masterpieces in this genre, Le Bourgeois gentilhomme and Le Malade imaginaire, have chapters to themselves. Finally, the Companion looks at modern directors' theatre, exploring the central role played by productions of his work in successive 'revolutions' in the dramatic arts in France.

'One hopes that this worthy volume will serve as a basis for further research in the area and that, together with the work of groups such as the New Chamber Opera Ensemble and Les Arts Florissants, it will make the delights of early French lyric theatre available to modern audiences as well.' -Julia Prest, Times Literary SupplementMusic and Theatre in France 1600-1680 defines the musical practices of French drama from the arrival of the first repertory companies in Paris until the establishment of the Comédie-Française. The dynamic interaction of the performing arts gave rise to a set of musical conventions that informed Molière's theatre as well as early French opera.
