About this show

Fables de La Fontaine is a witty visualization of the poetry of the French literary icon Jean de La Fontaine. These nineteen selected vignettes, lasting no more than five minutes each, breathe new life into La Fontaine's allegorical tales. Robert Wilson directs fifteen of France's finest actors in this whimsical work featuring marvelous masks and costumes that depict lions, birds, foxes, spiders, ants, stags, and snakes as seen through the eyes of a 21st century visionary.
