The theatre installed for the première of La Princesse d'Elide

Plaisirs de l’Île enchantée in English means Pleasures of the Enchanted Island. The Enchanted Island references Louis XIV and his court. This was a party given to start the building campaigns for the Chateau de Versailles in particular to acquaint those involved in its construction, his wife, mother, lovers, mistresses, and family in general to a seven day or longer cotillon style ball and overall culture. Molière played a large role in the organisation of festivities, which featured the premières of La Princesse d'Élide and Tartuffe.[1][2]
