Lust (1993)

Compositeur: Heather Brothers

Parolier: Heather Brothers

Librettiste:

Based upon Wycherley's The Country Wife, this rollicking Restoration revel throws off the shackles of Puritan austerity in a high-spirited celebration of "the noblest urge bestowed on us". Ribaldry, romance and drama abound in the hilarious tale of Homer, a notorious London libertine.

Résumé

London 1661, Pride, covetousness, envy, glutton, anger and sloth spread like the plague. But no sin was quite so contagious as LUST, an no sinner quite so big as Horner.
To the ladies his looks were appealing and so where his considerable charms.
To their husbands he threatened their manhood: thrusting his prescence into the most delicate parts of society, parading his swollen reputation wherever he could and openly exposing the ins-and-outs of his private life.

Commentaires :
Based on “The Country Wife” by William Wycherley, this was described as a “Carry On” comedy set to music. They either loved it, or they hated it. One critic commented: “I’m told that ‘Lust’ was performed to great acclaim at the Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch; a more telling indictment of Essex Man as a cultural arbiter would be hard to imagine.” It ran for three and a half months.
