Emilie's Voltaire

by Arthur Giron
Presented by Living Image Arts
The Beckett Theatre
Jan 8 - Feb 7
$46.25 Tickets

Winner of the Galileo Prize in 2000, this innovative and uniquely rich, epic play plunges us into the tempestuous love affair of two great minds, the legendary scholar, Voltaire, scientist by day and actress by night, Emilie du Chatelet. In an era when intellect was a dangerous possession for a woman, two of the most intriguing and brilliant thinkers of their time, risked everything for a love affair that spanned decades. Highly acclaimed but never before staged, Emelie’s Voltaire will be produced as LIA’s first ever five week run at The Beckett Theatre.


這種只有兩個人就演了一鍋半小時的鼕鼕,講滴又是超級哲學家的故事,當然就台詞超多超長而且暗藏玄機,粉多時候偶都嘛聽到霧沙沙去。不過整體來說,故事非常符合現在史學家對這兩鍋人以及那鍋時代背景滴了解哦,尤其係牛頓新科學對啟蒙哲士們的重要性。跟坐在課堂上聽老師講兩鍋小時的啟蒙時代裡的伏爾泰還有情婦 Marquise Du Chatelet 比起來,溜到劇場看這絕對是比較合算滴。

同鍋劇場同段時間還有鍋 23 Knives - Caesar and Cleopatra,也係挺引誘人滴。不過它滴票定價只有 $18 ,低到有點讓人擔心品質到底如何。天氣降子冷,戲看完回家更是已經三更半夜了,如果遇上太太太難看的戲係真滴會想殺人放火滴咧。
