A shoe salesman is in trouble, sentimental intrigues and commercial adventures prevail, with his pretty wife and a whole collection of characters in a frenzied plot… and a hair-raising musical comedy.
Screening presented by Benoît Duteurtre with attractions
The artists of the Opéra Comique company were among the first interpreters hired by the emerging film industry, from silent movies inspired by standards of the repertoire to musical films taking advantage of the successes of the Opéra Comique. Today the Opéra Comique offers to explore opera in cinema with the help of Benoît Duteurtre. The programming of these films is a way to revive the emotion of a screening in a historic theater and to discover forgotten or recently restored masterpieces.
