Jean Anouilh Quote

My wife was an opera singer, you know. She bellowed her way through Wagner as a Valkyrie. I married her and made her give up the theatre, to my eternal cost. She was to go on acting for myself alone. A performance at his own expense, lasting for more than twenty years, tends to wear out your spectator.


The waltz of the toreadors: a play in three acts. Translated by Lucienne Hill (ed. 1958)
