In celebration of the 200th anniversary of Charles Gounod’s birth, Odyssey Opera presents a rare stage performance of his operatic take on Molière’s Le Médecin Malgré Lui. A meeting of the 17th and the 19th centuries complete with word-for-word spoken dialogue from the original play, this 1858 opéra-comique was lauded by Berlioz, Saint-Saëns, Stravinsky, and other fellow composers. This production includes recitatives by Erik Satie commissioned by Diaghilev for a 1924 revival of the piece. In French with English titles.
