Description: Cyrano de Bergerac, Rostand’s most popular play, commingled nostalgia for 17th-century French life with swashbuckling heroism, romance, and lyrical verse. Cyrano, similar to Don Quixote and Don Juan, has endured as a popular literary figure. Uzan's French libretto for the opera stays faithful to Rostand's classic.

Cyrano is a larger-than-life personality. While skilled in the sword and pen, the nobleman is afflicted with a monstrous nose. He presumes that no woman will ever return the affections of a man with such a proboscis. Despite his love for the beautiful Roxane — or by virtue of it — Cyrano agrees to help a handsome rival to win her heart.
