In collaboration with Sands Films Studios, part 5 of Hex's series 'Festival of the Sun King':
Making an intellectual contrast with 'Tous les Matins du Monde', this lavish production takes the period melodrama to the verge of soap opera, while retaining its rarified refinement.

Gerard Corbiau makes atmospheric use of real locations, authentic costumes and a glorious score, and the masques devised by Lully (Terral) and Moliere (Karyo) are slyly staged with a panache that not only evokes their original majesty, but also their purpose - to disguise deficiency in substance with lashings of style.
This screening is paired with Hex's final concert of their series, 'Grand Ballet', on the 22nd of June.
