C’ÉTAIT MARIE-ANTOINETTE

This biographical play featuring music by Rameau, Grétry, Gluck, Piccinni, Sacchini, Salieri, Mozart and Nazaire Fabre depicts the life of Marie Antoinette, Queen of France, from her arrival in Versailles to the years leading up to and during the French Revolution. This production draws on a variety of resources, including diaries, letters, and firsthand accounts. From family life in Vienna to the choke of the guillotine, this gripping show combines a fast-paced historical narrative with all the elements of scandalous fiction: Marie’s wedding at Versailles to Louis XVI, the French court, boredom, hypocrisy, loneliness, allies, enemies, scandal, intrigue, sex, peasant riots, the fall of the Bastille, mob rule in Paris, imprisonment, and, finally, execution.
