Aquila Theatre Company in Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac

Event Description

Beautifully funny and poignant, Cyrano de Bergerac is one of the most famous romantic adventures in literature. In this classic story of unrequited love, Cyrano is besotted with the beautiful Roxanne, and yet, because of his famously huge nose, feels he can never truly win her heart. Cyrano acts out his love vicariously through a handsome friend, by composing elegant love letters and teaching him the arts of eloquence with which to woo Roxanne. Cyrano's adventure unfolds, taking us on a compelling journey through the romantic streets of Paris, the dramatic battlefield of Arras and the placid cloisters of a convent.

Cyrano de Bergerac was first staged to great acclaim at the Theater de la Porte St. Martin in 1897. This superb play immediately thrust the dramatist Edmond Rostand to prominence and led Cyrano to become one of the most famous French plays of the late 19th century. The story, based on a true historical figure, still attracts audiences today, more than ever, both on the stage and in film. Notable film productions of this tale include Jose Ferrer’s Oscar-winning performance in 1950, Gerard Depardieu’s in 1990, and Steve Martin’s modern American version, Roxanne, in 1987.
