Places to visit in Paris. Languages: en, he, ru

House Lully is one of the oldest houses in Paris. His story is linked with Jean-Batiste Lully. He was born in the family of a Florentine miller on November 28, 1632. Jean-Batiste came to France in March 1646 in the entourage of the Duke de Guise as an Italian teacher for the royal niece. Palace intrigues and conspiracies send the niece Mademoiselle de Montpensier to exile in the castle of Saint-Fargeau. Jean-Batiste wanted to stay in Paris, asked to be relieved of his post, and soon began serving at the royal court, composing music for ballets and dancing them with the King and the courtiers. In 1662, Jean-Batiste married Madeline the daughter of composer Michel Lambert. The marriage was made at the request of King Louis XIV, who was tired of stoping the composer for homosexual pranks. Moliere made his debut in Paris in 1658 and five years later conquered the heart of Louis XIV. The King asked Moliere to write a play in which he wanted to dance. Moliere and Lulu worked on the play "Captive Marriage", which began a strong friendship between them. Jean-Batiste received 11,000 Livres from Moliere to buy land and build a building. The beautiful architectural luster, popular during the reign of the Sun King, is visible on the facade, decorated with masks of Bachus and bas-reliefs with the image of musical symbols. On January 8, 1687, conducting his performance "Te Deum" (for you, Lord), Lully injured his leg with the tip of a cane, which at that time beat the beat. The wound developed into an abscess and passed into gangrene. On March 22, 1687, the composer died. This house knows many famous Parisians of the time. Its walls remember musicians, literators, and artists from the beautiful baroque era of the Sun King. The music that Lully composed can be heard today.
