    Cyrano de Bergerac is a finely crafted romantic comedy exploring the love-triangle between Cyrano, a poet and soldier with an impossibly gigantic nose, who loves the beautiful Roxane but lacks the courage to tell her, wooing her instead through the good looks of a young hero, Christian.Antigone is the first great `resistance' drama, and one of the most definitive Greek tragedies. Creon, the King of Thebes, has forbidden the burial of Antigone's brother because he was put to death as a traitor to the crown. Despite being engaged to Creon's son Haemon, Antigone disobeys the King and buries her brother. Enraged, Creon condemns Antigone to death and buries her alive in a cave. The prophet Teiresias warns Creon against such rash actions, and eventually Creon relents-but when he goes to release Antigone it is too late: she has already hanged herself.
