In his interpretation of one of the most distinguished plays of the world repertoire, Nikolai Roshchin takes new scenic adaptation of the classical text, based on its contemporary direct translation.
‘We excluded almost all verses, most of known scenes, and denied historic atmosphere, but we left romantic attitude to opposition, eventually – mirage of opposition, and evaporation of opposition’s spirit. However, we believe that the essence of the play hasn’t faded, but, to the contrary, sharpened. Mind: this staging isn’t mere illustration of the text,’ says Director. ’Is such rigid Cyrano likely or wanted? How might the whole story have developed nowadays? This is what fascinates us in the new production of Rostand’s heroic comedy’.
