Lucrece Borgia

26 February @ 7.30 pm - 10.30 pm

AED 45

Victor Hugo’s 1830s play has the eponymous anti-heroine seeking to escape from the evil that is her condition and failing. Gennaro, the child she had with her brother, inadvertently falls in love with her at a masked ball; stung by the insults of Gennaro’s friends and suspected of adultery by her husband, Lucrezia opts for revenge … “Lucrezia is a moral monster,” says the PR blurb, “but this monster is a loving mother”.

This is the film of a live performance directed by Denis Podalydes for the Comédie-Française and recorded at the Salle Richelieu, Paris. It’s shown in the well-equipped cinema room of AF Dubai with English subtitles. Tickets are AED 35 for AF members, AED 45 for others; book via mediatheque@afdubai.org.
