A delightfully tantalizing vaudeville!

The expression “Sainte Nitouche” (literally “(female) Saint Wouldn’t-Touch-It”) appeared for the first time in Rabelais’ Gargantua in 1534 and referred to a woman who appears innocent, wise and even prudish, yet who by nature defies morality and conventions in private. In the 19th century, the Sainte Nitouche took on the traits of the “emancipated” woman: from the dancer to the socialite, from the established bourgeoise to the simple peasant girl, every art form portrays the ambivalence between a strict upbringing and moral emancipation. It is not surprising that Hervé plays the title-role of his operetta in 1883…
