Cyrano de Bergerac

by EDMOND ROSTAND
adapted and directed by JOSEPH HAJ

A swashbuckling romance

 

Cyrano de Bergerac is the full package: he’s a poet, playwright and consummate swordsman. The only thing standing in the way of declaring his love for Roxane is his grotesquely large nose. When Roxane confesses that she’s fallen for a handsome young cadet named Christian, Cyrano takes him under his wing, adds brains to his beauty and, through Christian, expresses his own feelings to Roxane without her suspecting a thing. Wit, wordplay and rousing passion make this a heroic comedy for the ages.

Three things to know

  • When Cyrano de Bergerac premiered in 1897, the audience applauded for over an hour after the final curtain.
  • Director and adapter Joseph Haj combined his working knowledge of French with two English translations to pen this new version.
  • The play inspired 1987 film Roxanne, a rom-com starring Steve Martin as the large-nosed C.D. Bales and Daryl Hannah as Roxanne.
