THE JEALOUS LOVER

Versailles, 1785. Marie-Antoinette is bored. Her husband, King Louis XVI, prefers to enjoy himself making locks and playing the bassoon rather than paying attention to her. That is when a mysterious foreign musician arrives at court. Discreet, attractive, a virtuoso on the harp, he soon makes the young queen’s heart beat faster. When Marie-Antoinette decides to put on a concert in which both her husband and her new lover are to perform, things turn out a bit more complicated than she had intended.

The Jealous Lover was a comical musical show that toured in Quebec and France, between 2019 and 2023. It presented works by Mozart, Gr←try, M←hul and Devienne, performed by soprano Marianne Lambert, bassoonist Mathieu Lussier, and harpist Val←rie Milot, who enjoyed themselves as they plunged into the refined but hypocritical atmosphere of pre-revolutionary Versailles and took a few liberties as they revived the melodies that stirred the blood of courtiers and spawned rivalries amongst them.
