A Representation at the Hotel de Bourgogne. The hall of the Hotel de Bourgogne, in 1640. A sort of tennis-courtarranged and decorated for a theatrical performance. The hall is oblong and seen obliquely, so that one of its sides forms theback of the right foreground, and meeting the left background makes anangle with the stage, which is partly visible.On both sides of the stage are benches. The curtain is composed of twotapestries which can be drawn aside. Above a harlequin's mantle are the
 
royal arms. There are broad steps from the stage to the hall; on either sideof these steps are the places for the violinists. Footlights. Two rows, one over the other, of side galleries: the highest divided intoboxes. No seats in the pit of the hall, which is the real stage of the theater;at the back of the pit, i.e., on the right foreground, some benches formingsteps, and underneath, a staircase which leads to the upper seats. Animprovised buffet ornamented with little lusters, vases, glasses, plates of tarts, cakes, bottles, etc. The entrance to the theater is in the center of the background, under thegallery of the boxes. A large door, half open to let in the spectators. On thepanels of this door, in different corners, and over the buffet, red placardsbearing the words, 'La Clorise.'At the rising of the curtain the hall is in semi-darkness, and still empty. The lusters are lowered in the middle of the pit ready to be lighted.
