The Theater and Cinema Center under the direction of Nikita Mikhalkov presents a performance based on the play of the same name by the French playwright Edmond RostandCyrano de Bergerac… Screenings are held in the building of the educational and theatrical complex of GITIS.
The performance is dedicated to the 150th anniversary of the birth of Edmond Rostand. It was also timed to coincide with the 400th anniversary of the birth of the playwright, philosopher, poet and writer Cyrano de Bergerac. He became the prototype of the hero of one of the best plays of Rostand.
“The play combined two times at once: the poetic and romantic era of the 17th century with its external surroundings, which Rostan described (swords, tournaments, valiant knights, luxurious costumes) and modern time with all its bustle and haste,” said the director of the play Igor Yatsko …
Set designer Yuri Kuper, costume designer Sergei Struchev, choreographer Ramune Khodorkaite, composer Alexander Simonenko, and battle director Andrei Uraev worked on the implementation of the unusual artistic concept of the production.
The main role in the heroic comedy was played by the actor Anton Strelyaev.
“Cyrano de Bergerac is a performance filled with energy, hooliganism, youth and thirst for life, in which another attempt is made to raise global rhetorical questions of spirit, beauty, high ideals. This is an attempt to inject the anti-modern into the theatrical life, ”noted Igor Yatsko.
