This study points to the evidence that during Moliere's most creative period in Paris, comedy and ballet were increasingly integrated in a unified spectacle. They are not viewed as competing art forms, but in a natural and complementary relationship. In the evolution of comic form, ballet is seen to offer aesthetic patterns through which comedy comments on characters who themselves, in the cyclic circular rhythms regulating behaviour and speech, possess a strong affinity with ballet.
