Cyrano de Bergerac


Originally written in 1897 by Edmond Rostand and directed by Alexander Kuzin, Cyrano de Bergerac is a play written in verse, with rhyming couplets of 12 syllables per line.

It is a light hearted heroic comedy, divided into 5 acts with one intermission.

From Wikipedia; “Hercule Savinien Cyrano de Bergerac

, a cadet (nobleman serving as a soldier) in the French Army, is a brash, strong-willed man of many talents.

In addition to being a remarkable duelist, he is a gifted, joyful poet and is also shown to be a musician. However, he has an extremely large nose, which is the reason for his own self-doubt. This doubt prevents him from expressing his love for his distant cousin, the beautiful and intellectual heiress Roxane, as he believes that his ugliness denies him the “dream of being loved by even an ugly woman.”

The performance typically premieres in September, with its last premier being September 14 – 15, 2013.

Other Premieres

The current season of plays and performances include Jordi Galseran’s METHOD GR?NHOLMA, Elena Chizhov’s Time Women, Mikhail Bulgakov’s Running, Carlo Goldoni’s The Liar, and several others.
