Theatre, 1979

Tartuffe

Bergman's first Molière production on the German stage was met with mixed criticism, albeit predominantly negative.

'Yes, that was completely unsuccessful.'
Ingmar Bergman

About the production

Bergman's production focussed more attention on the bourgeois fool Orgon and his often silly and easily duped entourage than on the hypocritical Tartuffe, the dangerous impostor.
