Cyrano de Bergerac is, perhaps, the greatest classic romance.

Set in 17th century France, it features the eponymous poet-swordsman with a misshapen nose but abundant panache who falls hopelessly in love with the beautiful Roxane.

She, alas, loves another, the dashing Gascon soldier Christian de Neuvillette and Cyrano finds himself acting as the young suitor's ghost writer, pouring out exquisite love poems to win the day.

This production uses Anthony Burgess's fine verse translation of Rostand's ever-popular play.

Cyrano is played by Kenneth Branagh, Roxane by Jodhi May and Christian by Tom Hiddleston.

They make the most not only of the passion and poetry and the famously moving conclusion, but also the humour which threads through the play.

Producer: Nicolas Soames

A poet-swordsman with a mis-shapen nose falls in love with the beautiful Roxane.
