A man of high standing. Orgon is a wealthy old widower keen on seeing his daughter Silvia married to an equally wealthy young man, assuming that this will ensure happiness for her. His love for his daughter is tempered with an old fashioned sensibility of paternal dominance. Yet, his staunch traditionalism conceals a romantic’s heart.
I love the fact that he is the only character in the play that doesn’t fit a traditional commedia stock character. He is very down to earth and has a huge heart and loves his daughter so much.
