The King Is Dancing Movie Synopsis

On his deathbed, musician Jean-Baptiste Lully remembers the outstanding points of his life and career. In the early 1660s, young King Louis XIV puts Lully in charge of the court's music, counting on him to create sumptuous ballets. The ambitious Lully has made many enemies within the court, including the composer Cambert, when he marries his beloved Madeleine. Brought to collaborate with Molière on many musical comedies, Lully ends up betraying him when he obtains the exclusive rights to produce musical shows from the king. This monopoly bestows upon him the title of creator of the French opera.
