“Le malade imaginaire” a comedy-ballet in three acts, is the last Molière's piece of art that had its premiere in 1673. The patient is in trouble, he has to deal with family problems that deprive him of time and concentration, valuable for thinking about his current symptoms, while his quiet routine is assaulted by strong impulses: greed, pain, deceit and betrayal. Argan must, despite the difficulty of his state, which requires continuous care, face with his other roles in addition to the one of a patient. Argan is a father, husband, brother and master, Argan is sly and naive, a victim and a bully: situational humor strengthened by the facial comedy looms over the scene, it does not allow indulgence to prejudice or despair, everything is a subject of jokes, even human life - the bet which Molière himself payed when he died after a fourth embodiment of " Le malade imaginaire " by pulmonary artery rupture that was a consequence of a severe attack cough which caught him on the stage.
Tickets are available at the box office in the ground floor of the Festival Palace (Od Sigurate 1) and in Luža as well as at the venue one hour prior the performance.
