Swordsman, Philosopher, Poet, Raconteur Cyrano
de Bergerac is all these things, but none of them makes him happy. What he
desires above all is the love of the beautiful Roxane. But his problem is as
plain as the nose on his face. Surely he is too ugly ever to be loved?
Salvation of a kind arrives in the form of the
handsome yet tongue-tied Christian de Neuvillette - might not Cyrano's
eloquence and Christian s beauty together win Roxane? Yet duelling foes,
powerful rivals, and a war against Spain will all put our hero to the test
before he finds his way at last into his lady's arms.
First performed on 12th July 2013 in Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre, Chester.
