Le Tartuffe

Benno Besson

The name Benno Besson recalls the memorable performance of Carlo Gozzi’s l’Oiseau vert that the Comédie de Genève brought to Théâtre Denise-Pelletier in 1985. Benno Besson is back to delight Montréal audiences with Molière’s le Tartuffe.


“Benno Besson’s staging is pure pleasure.” Le Nouveau Quotidien (Switzerland), 1995

“A magnificent performance…. Benno Besson unabashedly turns Molière’s famous comedy into farce, using the full range of his talents as a director with a cast that excels in even the smallest roles.” Tages-Anzeiger (Switzerland), 1995
