Comic poet and dazzling swordsman, Cyrano is hopelessly in love with Roxane. But Roxane loves the dashing Christian. Cyrano, in a selfless act of love, woos Roxane on Christian’s behalf, writing his love letters, feeding him his lines. Romance. Tragedy. Comedy. Excitement.
A universal, actionpacked love story which has been a popular hit on the stage for over a century and the inspiration for countless films.
This version of the classic by Ranjit Bolt opened at Bristol Old Vic in May 2007.
‘Thanks to Ranjit Bolt’s cracking new verse translation...this rendition of Cyrano is thrilling to listen to, line by line, word by word, and there is no resisting its pace, humour and charm.’ Guardian
