NT Live Encore: Cyrano De Bergerac
Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all - if only he could win the heart of his true love Roxane...
Director: Jamie Lloyd
Starring: James McAvoy, Anita-Joy Uwajeh, Nima Taleghani
Running time: 3h (the full running time, inclusive of trailers)
James McAvoy (X-Men, Atonement) leads in this inventive adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, returning to cinemas due to unprecedented popularity. It was first broadcast last autumn from London's West End.
A magnetic soldier full of swagger and brilliant poet, Cyrano de Bergerac is in love with his beautiful and intelligent cousin Roxane without her knowing. His one curse in his life, he feels, is his large nose and although it may have been a forming influence in his razer-sharp wit, he believes that Roxane will reject him.
When the handsome but unpoetic Christian falls for the beautiful Roxane, he asks Cyrano to help him win her heart. Cyrano de Bergerac can be delivered as an allegory of inner and outer beauty.
Edmond Rostand’s masterwork is adapted by Martin Crimp, with direction by Jamie Lloyd (Betrayal). This classic play is brought to life with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano’s powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.
