Comédie française – Cyrano de Bergerac, Edmond Rostand

Friday Februay 22d, 3pm
Wednesday Februaay 27th 7pm

Seeing Cyrano at the Comédie-Française is truly an event in itself, but this production, saluted six times at Les Molières, adds to the experience with its masterful stage direction, the remarkable direction of the players, and its accomplished set design. A grand performance.

Cyrano is cursed with a prominent nose but gifted with words. He uses this talent to help handsome Christian win Roxane’s heart, whom he also loves…

“When we, actors of la Comédie-Française, stage plays, we consciously feel this desire to show off this theatre of ours, to show everyone why we love it and why we want to be here.” With these words in mind, award-winning director, stage and cinema actor Denis Podalydès takes over the historical stage. Opera buffa, tragedy, romantic drama, symbolist poetry, slapstick comedy… all genres are called upon to give life to this staging of one of the most emblematic texts of the French repertoire!
