The Frick Collection Presents Special Exhibition, PIERRE GOUTHIERE: VIRTUOSO GLIDER, 2/2

The Frick Collection is pleased to present a rare opportunity for the public to experience a theatrical performance in the museum's galleries, presented in conjunction with the acclaimed special exhibition Pierre Gouthière: Virtuoso Gilder at the French Court. The Constant Players is a comedy in one act by the French eighteenth-century playwright Pierre de Marivaux. The most esteemed successor to the seventeenth-century playwright Molière, Marivaux's innovative language reveals the close relationship between refined artistry and raw emotion. The play is adapted and directed by Mériam Korichi with actors Joan Juliet Buck, Catherine Eaton, Adam Green, and Sophie Orloff; opera singers Clarissa Lyons (soprano), Ashley Kerr (soprano), Nicholas Martorano (baritone), and Alexander Swan (tenor); and pianist Gerald Martin Moore.

While the museum has hosted several performances in its galleries, this will be the first time a play has been performed in its entirety. The galleries of the museum will come to life as a period setting, with the actors moving between the Fragonard Room, the Dining Room, and Music Room-making for a completely unique experience. Additionally, Marivaux's work is rarely translated or preformed in New York, allowing American audiences the opportunity to discover one of the most important French dramatists of the eighteenth century.

Tickets to the event may be purchased online for $50 ($45 for Members) at www.frick.org/salon. The Frick Collection gratefully acknowledges Ayesha Bulchandani-Mathrani for her support of this series.
