Tango

The Tango started life as music of the slums and took on the form of an earthy and sensual dance. The music exudes strong feelings of sensuality, passion and the romantic element of the tragic too. Its dervish and dramatic nature imbued the music with the sense of the ‘dance of death.’

Essentially the music of exiled people, the musical themes of Tangos often centre on broken love, the sadness for having left a country behind for a new life, as well as a desire and passion for life!

Charles Hazlewood is joined by the quintet Tango Volcano and members of the BBC Concert Orchestra to explore the history of this exciting and sensual world.

Cyrano de Bergerac

CYRANO DE BERGERAC
by Edmond Rostand
adapted for radio by John Tydeman

Cyrano de Bergerac is, perhaps, the greatest classic romance. Set in 17th century France, it features the eponymous poet-swordsman with a misshapen nose but abundant panache who falls hopelessly in love with the beautiful Roxane. She, alas, loves another, the dashing Gascon soldier Christian de Neuvillette and Cyrano finds himself acting as the young suitor's ghost writer, pouring out exquisite love poems to win the day.
This production uses Anthony Burgess's fine verse translation of Rostand's ever-popular play. Cyrano is played by Kenneth Branagh, Roxane by Jodhi May and Christian by Tom Hiddleston. They make the most not only of the passion and poetry and the famously moving conclusion, but also the humour which threads through the play.
