Outstanding

Pierre Corneille was a precursor to Moliere, and was an excellent playwright. Richard Wilbur, who translated many Moliere plays, is the translator of the work in this recording. It is an excellent rhyming verse translation, like pretty much all of Richard Wilbur's translations. I enjoyed this recording quite a lot and recommend it. Full cast and full dramatic quality.
