Arturo Cirillo brings Cyrano’s unforgettable love story to the stage and, in a whirlwind of capes, feathers, top hats and sequins, colours it with music and songs from variety and song-theatre shows. Rostand’s 19th-century poet and swordsman sets aside his melancholy moods as he becomes a performer who only succeeds in finding his true identity on stage. The dynamic and irreverent performance features a well-matched cast (Cirillo performs alongside Valentina Picello, Giacomo Vigentini, Rosario Giglio, Giulia Trippetta and Francesco Petruzzelli) that skilfully treads the fine line between fiction and metatheatricality.
