Overview

Hercule Savinien Cyrano de Bergerac, a cadet in the French Army, is a brash, strong-willed man of many talents. In addition to being a remarkable duelist, he is a gifted, joyful poet and is also shown to be a musician. However, he has an extremely large nose, which is the reason for his own self-doubt. This doubt prevents him from expressing his love for his distant cousin, the beautiful and intellectual heiress Roxane, as he believes that his ugliness denies him the even the love of a homely woman.

Edmond Eugène Alexis Rostand (1868-1917) was a French playwright and poet. Well-educated and from a wealthy family, Rostand was the youngest member of the French Academy when he was elected in 1901. Rostand wrote a dozen plays during his career, but the most successful was CYRANO DE BERGERAC, loosely based on the life of a real person. He died during the Spanish flu pandemic in 1917.
