NT Live: Cyrano de Bergerac
Opens April 4, 2020
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 of language set Roxane's world alight?
Edmond Rostand's masterwork is adapted by Martin Crimp, with direction by Jamie Lloyd (Betrayal). The classic play is brought to life with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano's powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.
