Disney prepares a curious musical, on the script which is already working the Oscar-winning Turell of Makrani (“Moonlight”). A project called “the moor Cyrano” (“Cyrano the Moor”) will become a musical fusion of two classical masterpieces — “Cyrano de Bergerac” and “Othello”. The action will take place in the Bristol region in England of the XIX century. We can assume that the upcoming musical the pomp and scale that will not yield to such disney shows as “Cinderella” and “beauty and the beast”.
The play by William Shakespeare “Othello” tells the story of a Moorish General who literally goes crazy with jealousy and kills his own wife Desdemona. Cyrano de Bergerac the hero of the drama by Edmond Rostand, a talented man with a prominent nose, from which he is suffering terribly. One word “nose” is enough to call the interlocutor to a duel. Because of its “physical disability” he is afraid to reveal his love for cousin Roxanne. Once she recognized that her heart was captivated by the handsome Christian, who enters the regiment of Gascon, which serves as Cyrano. One frightening Roxanne: suddenly a wonderful Christian hides another uncouth fool. After meeting with him, de Bergerac is convinced that man, though kind, brave and honest, really stars from the sky is not enough. And then he comes to mind the idea to create for Roxanne the perfect lover: beautiful face of Christian, Cyrano gives his rich spiritual world.
InterMedia recalls that Oyelowo in 2017, played the role of Othello in a Broadway production of Sam gold and Barbara Broccoli, where he was also involved Daniel Craig.
