Italian words by Moliére, music by Jean-Baptiste Lully / ed. and arr., with English words, by Patrick M. Liebergen
In the 1660s, Molière and Lully developed the comédie-ballet. This new comedic style included spoken dialogue in addition to dances, airs, and choruses. In this ballet, “Bon Dì” is sung by two Italian musicians, bringing good tidings. Distinctively Baroque, with only two Italian words required.
