What Is the Story of Cyrano de Bergerac?
Set in seventeenth century Paris, Cyrano de Bergerac centers on the life and love of the titular wordsmith Cyrano de Bergerac, a nobleman with a disfigured nose and talent as a swordsman and poet. Though he’s a charismatic and well-respected jack-of-all-trades, Cyrano is rejected by his love Roxane, who favors the handsome cadet Christian instead. Ashamed of his looks but still determined to win Roxane’s heart, Cyrano lends his gift of poetry to the dim-witted Christian, so that at least one of them may enjoy the benefits of her love.
