The Waltz of the Toreadors
A rarely-produced comic gem from French writer Jean Anouilh, THE WALTZ OF THE TOREADORS tells the story of retired General Leon St. Pe, a man who has pined away for a woman he once waltzed with at a military ball 17 years earlier. Trapped in a loveless marriage to his hypochondriac wife, General St. Pe dreams of the day he can at last be with his true love, who has waited for him all those years.
What stands in the way of their happiness? Is it loyalty to his wife? The respect for his proper position in society? Or is it his own pompous self? Is the old waltzer now tripping over his own feet?
