about

Cyrano de Bergerac, a proud but poor member of the respected and elite Gascon Guard, is a gifted poet as well as a feared swordsman.  The love of his life is a distant cousin, the beautiful Roxane.  But Roxane is in love with a handsome new cadet in the Guard, Christian.  Christian also loves Roxane but gallant as he is, he is a dullard and a dolt when it comes to the one thing Roxane values, a man who can speak and write the words of love.

Roxane asks Cyrano to protect Christian as he joins the Gascon Guard and haunted by the large and ugly nose, Cyrano knows he can never win Roxane himself and thus he vows to protect the one person she loves.  In a famous balcony scene, Cyrano whispers the words to Christian who calls them up to an enraptured Roxane.  When Christian climbs up to claim a kiss, Cyrano knows the kiss is really his but he can do nothing about it.

At the famous siege of Arras in 1640 against the Spanish, Christian proves his valor even to Cyrano who sometimes twice a day braves the Spanish lines to post love letters supposedly from Christian’s hand to Roxane back in Paris.

This is one of the most celebrated love stories of all times and a classic of the stage around the world.  Written in poetry by Edmond Rostand, it is a story of wonderful scenes and fascinating characters.  But many have not read it and will not because it is poetry.  What Jack R. Stanley has done is to tell Rostand’s story in prose so other who might not otherwise attempt it, could enjoy this masterpiece of theatrical story telling.
