Synopsis

Edmond Rostand's classic swashbuckling play Cyrano de Bergerac is presented in Parisian café society at Café de Coulisse. The lovely Jacqueline is the host and introduces us to the story of the witty, passionate, unlikely hero known for his big nose, skill with language and rapier wit. A play within a play, Cyrano takes audiences on a journey through the beauty of language, the bravery of the musketeers, the innocence of young love, the gift of friendship and the redemption of the antagonist. Cyrano challenges us to be our best selves while demonstrating the essence of panache and reminding us that love is the only truth that matters. Cyrano de Bergerac is one of the most acclaimed romantic adventures in classic literature. A fine swordsman from the Gascony region of France, Cyrano is besotted with the innocent and lovely Roxane, and yet, because of his enormous nose, Cyrano believes that he can never truly win her, so he lives with this painful secret of unrequited love. He befriends the handsome Christian de Neuvillette and helps him woo Roxane by composing elegant love letters filled with eloquent poetry and prose. Living his love vicariously through Christian, Cyrano's passionate adventure unfolds, taking us on a journey through the romantic streets of Paris, the bloody battlefield of Arras and the peaceful convent, where this beautiful story reaches its exquisite but heart-wrenching conclusion.

Customer Reviews

"This was a fantastic script with a lot of range for the lead actors. The story is dynamic and interesting from start to finish. As a one-act play it is a bit long for a 45 minute competition. Pacing needs to be kept going, and inventive ways to change scenes while action is still going on will be needed. Sword fights are very fun and definitely challenging for high school students to do. Good choreography and sounds should be implemented."
Review by Matthew Jacobsen, Brookings High School, Brookings, S.D.

Hints, Tips, and Tricks

"It was helpful for us to use color in costumes to help distinguish rank. This version was short - so it was a good way to start out the year. We kept our set simple so that we could do more with costumes."
Tip by Amy Dreibelbis, West Noble HS, Ligonier, Ind.
