In collaboration with the French Institute in Prague, the festival offers an attractive additional event. On 13 July, a screening of a recording of the illustrious comédie-ballet Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme by Molièr and Jean-Baptiste Lully will take place at Kino 35 at the French Institute. The five-act play was first staged at the Chambord Chateau in 1670. The recording from 2014 is from Théâtre Trianon in Paris.

This performance of Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme by Le Poème Harmonique (musical direction Vincent Dumestre, stage direction Benjamin Lazar) caused a sensation back in the early 2000s. The scenic reconstruction of a Baroque theatric production which brought together an ensemble of musicians, singers, dancers, and actors, spoke to a broad spectrum of spectators.

The event is organized by the French Institute in Prague.
