Overview
-

Beaumarchais wrote "The Marriage of Figaro," in 1778, putting a noble and his valet on the stage. This work was judged inadmissible and insidious and was banned by royal censors when it was to be staged in 1781. It did nothing but describe the society of its time in a critical way... Ten years after its writing, in 1788, the nation was set on the course towards chaos. The future excesses of the French Revolution couldn't have been conceived of without taking into account a knowledge of the events of these three decisive years... Herein find the tale!
