"Cyrano de Bergerac" returns to stage

Pere Arquillué plays the central role in this adaptation directed by Oriol Broggi at the Biblioteca de Catalunya

Almost a year after its successful debut, the Biblioteca de Catalunya brings back Oriol Broggi’s production of Cyrano de Bergerac, starring an impressive Pere Arquillué. The play, which has lost none of its importance in the theatrical landscape, is adapted in a way that respects the classic plot. Cyrano de Bergerac is a soldier-poet, proud and sentimental, gifted in sword fighting and verse. He is mortified however by his grotesquely ill-proportioned nose. This insecurity obliges him to hatch a plan to win the heart of the woman he loves.

Lauded by critics as one of the most powerful productions of last year’s season, Oriol Broggi’s version of Cyrano benefits from staging that takes full advantage of the gothic hall of the Biblioteca de Catalunya. The director has had the courage to revive a classic that has not been adapted for the Catalonian stage since the Cyrano of Josep Maria Flotats almost 30 years ago. It is an ode to the theatre of musketeers, quarrels, swords, hatred, love and emotions.
