At Bard SummerScape 2022, a new adaptation of Molière's Dom Juan will make its world premiere.
With eight weeks of live dance, theatre, music, and opera events, Bard SummerScape returns to the Hudson Valley from June 23 through August 14.
SummerScape 2022 will give the world debut of a new version of Molière's 1665 tragicomedy Dom Juan with a feminist twist, in honor of the French playwright's 400th birthday.
The production, running June 23-July 17, will use a new translation by scholar Sylvaine Guyot and Fisher Center Artistic Director Gideon Lester. Director Ashley Tata blends 17th century France with late 1970s America as she upends the play's gendered power structures through her casting choices.
