From Théophile Gautier
In 2021, the fate of Baron de Sigognac, a penniless nobleman languishing in his ruined castle, is at stake.

From June 30 to August 21

One evening, a troupe of traveling actors knocks on the door of Baron de Sigognac.
This singular host, having nothing more to lose, sets out to continue the journey with them ...
With the enchantment of the theater, Sigognac soon becomes Captain Fracasse, a proud and grotesque superhero.

Among countless adventures, Fracasse consumes himself with love for the virtuous Isabelle and causes a duel with the infamous Duc de Vallombreuse...

A popular show, demanding and generous, whose frame evokes in filigree the grandiose destiny of the Château of Grignan, exhumed from the ruins by its benefactor Marie Fontaine.
