Le Cid

Du 27/11 au 03/12/2016 Salle de la Grande Main

Pierre Corneille / Yves Beaunesne

Yves Beaunesne presents the most iconic of Pierre Corneille’s plays, Le Cid. We know the plot: Don Rodrigue and Chimène are in love. But happiness is short-lived, their respective fathers quarrel and Rodrigue kills Chimène’s father to avenge his own father’s honour. All is in place for this famous Corneillian dilemma to demonstrate the internal struggle within the characters of two key values: honour and love.
