Universal figure of French panache, Cyrano is a complex hero. A formidable speaker but also a poet, tough with his enemies but fraternal with his friends, in love with beauty but afflicted with a monumental nose, this ace of the sword is in love with his cousin Roxane, who, alas, loves elsewhere: the handsome Christian conquered his heart. Such is the trio that presents this heroic comedy in the form of a romantic drama. Farce rubs shoulders with tragedy and the fate of the characters is fulfilled against a backdrop of imposture.
