Cyrano is a nobleman with a head for poetry and a nose for miles. All of Paris adores him except for his true love Roxanne, who can’t see past his all-too-prominent facial feature. Instead, she falls for a handsome young cadet named Christian. When Christian admits he’s tongue-tied with Roxanne, Cyrano gives him the romantic words guaranteed to win her heart.

Story

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.

Critics' Reviews

"'Harry Potter' star Clemence Poesy is sublimely understated as Cyrano's great love, Roxane, and Soutra Gilmour's simple, flexible set smartly suggests a Renaissance-era painting brought to life."

Review by Tanner Stransky from Entertainment Weekly

"Hodge exerts himself mightily to bring Cyrano to life, and he’s at his finest when lunging and parrying, both physically and verbally."

Review by Elisabeth Vincentelli from The New York Post
