An unusual play of Moliere's - play whose characters are not seventeenth-century Frenchmen but ancient Greeks and Greco-Roman gods, a play combining the flavors of vaudeville, fantasy, high comedy, farce, and even opera.
The god Jupiter is once again in love. But how can he seduce the faithful Alcmene? By taking the features of her husband of course! Meanwhile his servant Mercury will pass for the valet Sosie. But then Amphitryon and Sosie return from the war ... Quiproquos, misunderstandings, twists... Molière manages mythological fantasy brilliantly!
