Story: Cyrano de Bergerac

Cyrano is a fearless musketeer, belonging to the company of the cadets of Gascony. He is in love with his cousin Roxane but does not dare to declare himself because she is so beautiful... and he is so ugly, afflicted with a huge nose: "it's a cape? ... it's a peninsula!". Out of love, he agrees to protect Christian, his rival, and even helps him to seduce Roxane.


Jean-Philippe Daguerre offers us a rhythmic and cheerful staging at Théâtre Le Ranelagh, with songs, violin, and sword fights, perfectly balancing the romance and the drama of Cyrano de Bergerac.

A wonderful piece, the rhythm set by a violinist that lends a lot of charm to the whole thing. Bravo to the actors, especially Cyrano, and thanks for a great time!

Bravo bravo!

This play is such a joy! Really intelligent staging, and excellent actors, especially Cyrano who completely incarnates his character in an admirable way! Thanks to all the troupe for this great evening of theatre!


Magnificent from the beginning until the end. Thank you for the laughs and the tears.

Highly Recommend

We really enjoyed the play Cyrano de Bergerac. Acting and production was brilliant and the theatre is friendly and atmospheric. We had wonderful seats at the front of the balcony. The subtitles worked superbly.

Passionate and fine performance of Cyrano

Went to their performance of "Cyrano de Bergerac" with my wife and mother. I love the play passionately, but my mother knew only the comical American takes on it, and my wife from South America knew nothing of it. We all loved it.I loved it b


Thank you, and bravo to the director and the troupe for two wonderful hours. The adaptation is amazing and serves this marvellous text well. A huge bravo to the violinist as well, a must see with the whole family


The play was excellent, the audience was enthralled

History and Fun Facts about the Théâtre Le Ranelagh

Step into the grand auditorium of the Théâtre Le Ranelagh, and prepare to be wowed by the ornate carved oak panelling adorning the orchestra and balconies, as well as the intricately decorated ceiling. Looking around you, it’s not hard to believe that this building is listed as one of Paris’ 'historical monuments'…


The Théâtre Le Ranelagh is tucked away in the heart of Paris’ 16th arrondissement, a few paces away from the Eiffel Tower on one side, and the bois de Boulogne on the other. It is built on the site of the old Château de Boulainvilliers, the estate was at the time right outside the city and covered 8 hectares (almost 12 football fields!). The theatre itself is rich in history and over 120 years old, after being converted to replace the château's music room by the landowner of the time into his own private venue where he could invite all the best-known actors and musicians in Paris to play there for him and his friends. After his death, the entire estate was destroyed to make way for the expanding city of Paris. All, that is, except for the theatre which was miraculously saved, and to this day still stands in its original spot! Don't be fooled by the unassuming exterior, once inside the Théâtre Le Ranelagh you can feast your eyes on its original decor of plush red velvet seating and carved oak panelling throughout.


The theatre is designed in the French style, meaning all of the seats are directly facing the stage and giving the auditorium a rectangular shape. The venue also features a small bar in its foyer complete with a fireplace and enough seating for up to 80 people, perfect for a drink before the performance.


Not just a theatre…

For a time in the early 1900s, the theatre was used as a cinema, which was incredibly popular. The director of the world-famous film Les enfants du paradis loved the theatre, and often programmed the film to be screened there. The cinema tradition still exists at Le Ranelagh, and films are still screened there from time to time! In addition to film screenings and a show programme rich with plays by classic French playwrights, the Théâtre Le Ranelagh holds puppet shows for younger audiences and other community events.
