Comédie-Française: "Cyrano de Bergerac" in Mutikino Targówek

The Comédie-Française (French Comedy) is also sometimes called the House of Molière, because its existence and tradition go back to the times of a great playwright. It is also one of the most prestigious theaters in the world. The oldest French stage was founded in 1680 by the decree of King Louis XIV, who merged the former Molière group with the Hôtel de Bourgogne. The theater since 1799 is based in the Théâtre des Variétés-Amusantes, in the beautiful Salle Richelieu, part of the Palais-Royal palace complex in the very center of Paris.

Edmond Rostand's heroic comedy "Cyrano de Bergerac" is a play in which comic elements mingle tragedy and laughter with tears. The drama written in 1897, based on the biography of Savinien de Cyrano (de Bergeraca), a seventeenth-century poet is one of the most characteristic texts of the French comedy balancing on the border of romance, slapstick, and heroic drama. Cyrano, a poet and brash man, with a grotesque big nose that didn’t allow him to confess his feelings to his beautiful cousin Roxane, is a spectacular role played by the most outstanding actors. The author created the part in close collaboration with her first performer, Benoît Constant Coquelin, who played the character over a thousand times until his death. Directed by Denis Podalydès, actor and director of Comédie-Française who has been associated with the theater since 1997.

"When we actors of this theater get the chance to direct a play, we unwittingly want to show our theater in full and everything that makes us love this theatre and what wants us to work here," says the director. Just as over a hundred years ago, Rostand drew upon the ideas and energies of the first performer of Cyrano, today Denis Podalydès has benefited from the inspiration of members of the French Comedian troupe. Comic opera, tragedy, romantic drama, farce - all these genres are included in this comedy with all its stir. None of Cyrano's crazy acts are missed here, and the action is heated to boiling point several times. The staging is somehow coming out of the "bottom of the theater" and runs through its spaces, involving different levels: cellars, attics, collapses. In 2007, the show won six Moliere Awards.
