Cyrano de Bergerac

Glyn Maxwell

SYNOPSIS

This adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac was created for BBC Radio 4, where it was first broadcast in 2015.

​Swordsman, Philosopher, Poet, Raconteur Cyrano de Bergerac is all these things, but none of them makes him happy. What he desires above all is the love of the beautiful Roxane. But his problem is as plain as the nose on his face. Surely he is too ugly ever to be loved? Salvation of a kind arrives in the form of the handsome yet tongue-tied Christian de Neuvillette. Might not Cyrano's eloquence and Christian's beauty together win Roxane? Yet duelling foes, powerful rivals, and a war against Spain will all put our hero to the test before he finds his way at last into his lady's arms.
