One of literature's best known romantic plays, Cyrano de Bergerac tells of long-nosed Cyrano's love for the lovely Roxanne. Aquila Theatre’s rendition of Cyrano's adventure carries the audience through the streets of Paris, into dramatic battlefield scenes, and finally, to a convent’s peaceful cloisters. It is there that this amusing yet emotional tale of unrequited love comes to its heart-wrenching end.
For Fans of: the Cyrano movies: 1950s version starring José Ferrer, 1990s version starring Gérard Depardieu, Roxanne (Steve Martin’s 1987 version)
What Critics Say: "The character is a compelling combination of strength and weakness: He is admired for his freedom of thought, yet chained by his repressed emotion. All who have loved unsuccessfully, or whose love has been thwarted by cowardice, find in him their demon. Our sympathies go with him." — David Bezanson, Filmcritic.com
