The Cid is one of the greatest classics in French culture.
Chimène and Rodrigue are passionately in love. Sadly, like Romeo and Juliette, these star-crossed lovers’ families are feuding, thus thwarting their love.
The audience is thrust into a violent and bloody plot: passion, vengeance, and treason bring us to the edge of our seats in this epic play. It is set in Castille where "love is mere pleasure, honour is a duty."
Through blood, tears, sacrifice, and courage, our young heroes will prove to us that love truly conquers all.
