Arts news and reviews with Kirsty Lang.

Critic Michael Coveney and Kirsty Lang consider the new production of Cyrano de Bergerac at Chichester Festival Theatre. It is directed by Trevor Nunn - making his Chichester debut - and stars Joseph Fiennes as the eponymous soldier-poet, with Alice Eve as the love of his life, Roxanne.

Straight from having received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Classical BRITS, tenor Jose Carreras discusses his life and music with Kirsty Lang. The son of a republican in Franco's Spain, he made his singing debut on national radio aged 8. Carreras went on to be become a world-famous operatic star and one of The Three Tenors - but in 1987, he was diagnosed with acute leukaemia. Now 62, and still singing, how has his approach to his art changed?

As crime writer John Harvey publishes his 100th book, we speak to him and two other authors who have also surpassed the 100-book mark: former Children's Laureate Michael Morpurgo and the prolific romance author Nora Roberts.
