LOST ILLUSIONS

August 27th,
4pm and 7pm

In 1821, Lucien de Rubempré (César winner Benjamin Voisin) arrives in Paris as a sensitive, and idealistic young poet determined to write a reputation-making novel. Instead, he finds himself swept into journalism, whose influence and reach is booming with the help of the printing press, widely available of late. Lucien agrees to write rave theater reviews for bribes, achieving material success at the expense of his conscience. Xavier Giannoli’s sumptuous adaptation of Honoré de Balzac’s epic novel, Lost Illusions is a ravishing vision of the birth of modern media.

After its initial rejection, Verdi’s unique opera, whose action unfolds in a contemporary setting, La traviata, based on Alexandre Dumas’ The Lady of the Camellias, became one of the most acclaimed works of the composer. Behind the outward show of luxury and frivolous pleasure, the “populous desert they call Paris” hides the stark cruelty of a social class for whom everything can be bought and sold.
