What are HD productions like??

Here is a short clip from London's National Theatre illustrating what National Theatre Live is.  All our HD Stage on Screen productions are similar in nature, whether they are ballets, concerts, plays and musicals, or special events.

Cyrano de Bergerac

Oct 3 2020 - 1:00pm

General Admission $15, $10 Students, $116 Flex Subscription

James McAvoy (X-Men, Atonement) returns to the stage in an inventive new adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, broadcast live to cinemas around the world from the West End in London.

Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all - if only he could win the heart of his true love, Roxanne.  There's just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart.  Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of Cyrano - or can his mastery of language set Roxanne's world alight?

Edmond Rostand's masterwork is adapted by Martin Crimp, with direction by Jamie Lloyd.  This classic play will be brought to life with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano's powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.
