Moliere: "This is only a slight impromptu, a simple pencil sketch, which it has pleased the King to have made into an entertainment. It is the most hastily composed of all those written by order of his Majesty; and when I say that it was sketched, written, learned, and acted in five days, I shall only be speaking the truth." This is a spoken version, without the original songs and dances to the music of Lully. - Summary by ToddHW Cast list: Comedy: TJ Burns Music: Rapunzelina The Ballet: Availle Sganarelle, father to Lucinde: Larry Wilson Clitandre, in love with Lucinde: Tomas Peter Monsieur Guillaume, dealer in hangings: Victor Villarraza Monsieur Josse, goldsmith: Craig Franklin Monsieur Tomes, a physician: Sonia Monsieur Desfonandres, a physician: ToddHW Monsieur Macroton, a physician: Son of the Exiles Monsieur Bahis, a physician: DrPGould Monsieur Filerin, a physician: alanmapstone A Notary: Zames Curran Lucinde, Sganarelle's daughter: Jessie Percival Aminta, Sganarelle's neighbor: SaraHale Lucretia, Sganarelle's niece: Leanne Yau Lisette, maid to Lucinde: Eva Davis A Quack: Nemo Stage Directions: Sandra Schmit Editor: ToddHW For further information, including links to online text, reader information, RSS feeds, CD cover or other formats (if available), please go to the LibriVox catalog page for this recording.
