Aquila Theatre to Perform ‘Cyrano de Bergerac’ at UW
March 1, 2013 — Aquila Theatre will perform “Cyrano de Bergerac” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 7, at the University of Wyoming College of Arts and Sciences auditorium.
Tickets cost $26 for the public and $23 for senior citizens and UW students. For tickets and information, visit the Wyoming Union ticket office or call (307) 766-6666. The performance is part of UW’s Cultural Programs’ spring concert series.
“We welcome the return of Aquila, a classical theater company whose mission is to bring ‘the greatest works to the greatest number,’” says Cedric Reverand, UW Cultural Programs director. “Aquila reaches the greatest number by extensively touring, having played in such diverse venues as Carnegie Hall, the ancient stadium at Delphi, the White House and, once again, culminating in Laramie last year at the A&S auditorium.”
Beautifully funny, poignant and often heart wrenching, “Cyrano de Bergerac” is one of the most famous romantic adventures in world literature.
Based in New York City, Aquila Theatre creates bold interpretations of classical plays for contemporary audiences. The New York Times describes the theater company as “a classically trained, modern hip troupe." Aquila is the professional company-in-residence at the New York University's Center for Ancient Studies.
Aquila presents a regular season of plays in New York, performs at international festivals and tours approximately 70 American towns and cities each year. It also produces an extensive educational program on performing and producing classical plays through schools, workshops and rural and urban communities.
The UW Cultural Programs series features a variety of world-renowned performers. The Cultural Programs’ spring series will conclude April 9 with violinist Ray Chen.
