    • Synopsis
    • Cyrano ... the backstage story
      CHRIS a charming young mouse and his merry bunch of mice are living in one of the
      most beautiful and leading theatres of Paris: “La Comedie Francaise”…
      They enjoy a lovely life on the rhythm of rehearsals and performances, as long as they
      get rid of those constant cruel wars caused by the caretaker and the cats in the theatre.
      Wars for no reason: for fear, selfishness, refusing to enjoy, to destroy the pleasure, for
      stupidity and evil.
      But the kitten-cat, Miss TY, a few months old, saved by Chris from the claws of
      Romeo, the caretakers’ dog, the one that always causes major damage, refuses this
      destiny. The kitten considers the mouse Chris as her blood brother, her adoptive
      father, to big confusion of her relatives; they consider it as the greatest betrayal
      possible.
      Today, like all the others, the actors enter the stage for rehearsal. On that very
      moment everybody has to leave, who does not play: people, mice, cats and dogs, at
      the risk of banned from the theatre for good; no human being or animal will break this
      rule. On the contrary, as privileged audience, cats and mice enjoy the theatre event.
      After the rehearsal, when the artists and technicians leave the scene, the skirmishes
      start all over again, fostered by the actor's play and the themes from the piece.
      The theatre play Cyrano de Bergerac is about courage, love, spirituality and poetry in
      letters. Therefore it turns out to be that not necessarily the strongest or the most
      beautiful will conquer, but the one with humor and spirit.
