Description de l’éditeur
Tartuffe, or The Impostor, or The Hypocrite first performed in 1664, is one of the most famous theatrical comedies by Moliere. The characters of Tartuffe, Elmire, and Orgon are considered among the greatest classical theatre roles. Moliere wrote Tartuffe in 1664. Almost immediately following its first performance that same year at the Versailles fetes, it was censored by King Louis XIV, probably due to the influence of the archbishop of Paris, Paul Philippe Hardouin de Beaumont de Perefixe, who was the King's confessor and had been his tutor.
