Juliette Binoche
stars in this modern-day production of Strindberg's 19th-century classic, where issues of gender, class and forbidden desire collide with seemingly unbreakable social conventions.

On Midsummer night, Mademoiselle Julie finds herself drawn to a servant and a deadly duel begins between them. The striking set, costumes by Lanvin and the presence of a watchful chorus create a contemporary atmosphere for this timeless tragedy.

'Frederic Fisbach's production is a real success, thanks to the grace of its main actress, the sharp vision of its director, and the perfect alchemy between Binoche and her two partners.' Le Soir (Belgium)
