A son entree au college, Jean-Baptiste Poclin apprend qu'il porte, a quelques lettres pres, le nom de Moliere. Cette revelation ainsi que la decouverte du Theatre de Moliere changeront son regard sur les autres, bouleverseront ses habitudes, et feront reflechir Monsieur Poclin pere, homme sec et rigide, que preoccupe uniquement le chiffre d'affaire de son usine de chaussettes. Ayant ces dernieres annees travaille sur des Contes de Perrault et des Fables de la Fontaine, il m'est apparu que, faisant de J.B. Poquelin - dit Moliere - le personnage central de ce spectacle, et mettant en musique des textes et des extraits de pieces de theatre admirables d'humanite et de modernite, je repondrais - de facon plus evidente que dans mes precedents ouvrages - a mon engagement artistique envers les jeunes interpretes et leurs maitres.

When joining college, Jean-Baptiste Poclin learned that apart from a few letters difference, his name was the same as Moliere's. This revelation together with the discovery of the Moliere's theatre were to change his view of others, deeply modify his ways and give food for thought to M. Poclin senior, a stiff and inflexible man solely concerned with the turnover of his socks manufacture. . . . As over the past few years, I have been working on the Perrault's Fairy Tales and Fables by La Fontaine, it struck me that using J.B. Poquelin - known as Moliere - as the core character of this entertainment, and setting to music texts and extracts from plays that are so admirably human and modern, I would fulfil my artistic commitment to young performers and their masters, more clearly so than in my previous works.
