Abstract Here is a spectacular French production of Racine's great play that treats the classical past with respect while demonstrating its continued, living interest. If it was the playwright's goal to show people as they are-not as they ought to be-then this performance represents French classical drama at its most moving, with equal attention to the language itself, the lavishness of sets and costumes, and the passion and appropriateness of the acting.
