STARTS APR 7, 2023
By Edmond Rostand
Adapted and directed by Josh Costello
Aurora Artistic Director Josh Costello adapts the classic tale for the intimacy of Aurora’s stage. Cyrano, the famed poet-soldier, loves Roxane, but has one fear: to be mocked by a lady for his enormous nose. Young Christian has a pretty face but lacks the wit to woo. Cyrano’s words and Christian’s looks combine to form a hero of romance – but does Roxane fall in love with Christian’s face or with Cyrano’s soul? This story of unrequited love, sacrifice, friendship, and poetry all at a time of war is brought into new focus in this world premiere five-actor adaptation.
"A tale of glorious theatricality, glittering poetry and heroic self-sacrifice... Cyrano de Bergerac [is] a hero for all time" — The Guardian
