NT Live: Cyrano De Bergerac (encore)

ON

196 minutes

Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand, in a new version by Martin CrimpDirected by Jamie Lloyd.

James McAvoy (X-Men, Atonement) returns to the stage in an inventive new adaptation ofCyrano de Bergerac, broadcast live to cinemas from the West End in London.

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. There’s just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart. Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of Cyrano - or can his mastery oflanguage set Roxane’s world alight?

Edmond Rostand’s masterwork is adapted by Martin Crimp, with direction by Jamie Lloyd (Betrayal). This classic play will be brought to life with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano’s powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.
