Programme Note

Synopsis:
The drunkard Mathurin wants his niece Colette to marry his drinking partner Lucas. But Colette is love love with Cléon and together with Marthurin’s wife Mathurine, they devise a plot to scupper these plans. They disguise themselves as Furies, so that when Mathurin and Lucas awaken from their drunken stupor, they believe they are in hell. Cléon, in the role of Pluto, offers Mathurin clemency if he gives up the drink and allows his niece to marry Cléon. When Mathurin has signed the marriage contract, they remove their masks. Lucas on the other hand, has made no promises and resumes his habutual ways.
