Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand

ZILLER BUILDING - MAIN STAGE

From 17.12.2010 to 17.04.2011

The eccentric Cyrano, an illustrious Gascony cadet, conjures up verses as easily as he wins sword fights. He is famed not only for his bravery and his poetry, but also for his nose, and if the first two have enabled him to carry all Paris before him, the third prevents him from gaining his heart's desire, his young cousin Roxane.
To ensure her happiness, he decides to sacrifice his feelings and help his rival in love.
In bringing the story of the legendary Cyrano the Bergerac to the stage, Edmond Rostand created one of the most popular theatrical heroes of all time. The play is a superb example of 19th-century Romanticism, a theatrical spectacle in which love and honour are tested in a variety of settings, including a theatre, a cookshop, a courtyard, a battlefield and a convent, and laughter and tears are present in equal measure.
This verse play is brought to the Main Stage of the Greek National Theatre by Nikos Karathanos, who has recently added a number of successful directing credits to his name. He also plays the title role, and is accompanied by a cast of outstanding young actors.

Main Theatre productions are performed in rotating repertory.
