He has no appreciation of the arts, until his wife Angelique drags him to a moving performance of Racine’s Berenice. Much to his surprise, he is overwhelmed by the power and beauty of the lead actress, Clara Devaux, who plays the Queen. He becomes so infatuated with her that he goes back to the play every night.
