Cyrano de Bergerac

One of the best-loved, romantic comedies of all time, Cyrano de Bergerac tells of a Gascony cadet: hero, poet and hopeless romantic, blessed with a huge heart and an enormous nose.

In love with the beautiful Roxanne, Cyrano fears she will never love him back and instead, has to settle for helping the handsome but tongue-tied Christian win her heart, even though it is Cyrano’s poetical soul that she unwittingly loves.

Guildford’s Performance Preparation Academy brings the wit, humour and heartache of Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano to life in Anthony Burgess’s sparkling translation, complete with rip-roaring sword fights and, of course, panache.

“The bounce and brilliance of Anthony Burgess’ translation” WHATSONSTAGE

"Emotional depth Rostand himself would surely have envied...Burgess' extravagant verse keeps its contours, yet trips off the tongue almost as though it were contemporary speech” THE TIMES
