The play 'Arlequin poli par làmour' can be seen in the 21/22 season at Theater Basel as part of the Abo Français.
A fairy is in love with Harlequin. She holds him captive and hopes to conquer his heart. But she has not reckoned with the intensity and innocence of first love that the beautiful Harlequin has for a local shepherdess. A few light bulbs, fairy lights and paper snakes provide the fairy-tale setting for this love story, which unfolds in favor of the sincere and naive lovers. Love triumphs - thanks to the furor of youth. Thomas Jolly is one of the most successful opera directors of his generation. He takes on these Marivaudagen with verve and from the full, and conjures from them intelligent, festive and utterly unique theater. An ode to cheekiness and the freedom to be unreasonable.
