Guangzhou Art Festival / Theatre 2017 kicks off with the famous French opera production “L’Avare” by Par la Comédie de Reims, Ludovic Lagarde. This famous opera production will be performed on stage at Guangzhou Opera House for two days, 8th and 9th July. This scheduled performance is also part of the series cultural events of the 12th Festival Croisements.

WHAT is L’Avare

Performed more two thousand times by the Comédie-French since 1680, The Miser entertains with its bouncy plot, its fanciful misunderstandings and hilarious pieces of bravura. Ludovic Lagarde gives to this great classic a new energy and highlights how this social and psychological satire is terribly contemporary.


WHO is Ludovic Lagarde

Born in 1962 in Paris, Ludovic Lagarde realized his first stage directions at the Comédie de Reims and at the Théâtre Granit in Belfort : Soeurs et frères by Olivier Cadiot (1993), All you need to know (1997), Retour définitif et durable de l’être aimé (2002) and Fairy Queen (2004). Since January 2009, Ludovic Lagarde has been the director of the Comédie de Reims.
