KC Molière Newsletter vol. V, No. 4: Molière and Me

Article by Rebecca Smith

Molière and Me, presented by Dr. Henriette Runte on Friday November 19, was a beautiful mosaic of fascinatingly connecting, colorful pieces. Just to start:

  • The lecture took place in the elegant, newly reopened Kansas City Museum, in rooms dappled with French Regency furniture and decoration, and even including a “Sun Parlor”, appropriately. Thank you to Paul Gutiérrez, for making the space available.
  • Dr. Runte stated proudly that she shares with Molière his birthday on January 15 – just 350 years apart.
  • She claimed as one of her defining life and career moments her experience at a Renee Fleming performance – and Ms. Fleming had performed in Kansas City the very day before at the Kauffman Center.

What followed was a lively retelling by Dr. Runte of how Molière came to hold an important place in her life and all she thought connected her to him.

Henriette Runte: Global Perspectives

As a first generation American, success was instilled in Henriette early on. She has earned an MA in French Literature and a PhD in French literature and theatre, both from the University of Kansas. Language led to literature, which led to teaching and travel. […]

But a few bumps in the road caused Henriette to reach back into her childhood and reconsider some dreams that had been set aside. In the first part of this podcast, we talk about her journey.
