CYRANO DE BERGERAC
By Edmond Rostand
Adapted by Andrew Upton
Original translation by Marion Potts
A heart as big as his nose.
A lover and a fighter, Cyrano de Bergerac is a man’s man. Peerless in battle and heroically eloquent in love, what he lacks in physical allure he makes up for in swordplay and wordplay.
In this lavish production, Richard Roxburgh dons the nose that launched a thousand quips. With the irresistible panache that Australian audiences have fallen in love with time and again, Roxburgh proves that the brain can be the greatest erogenous zone.
Joining him in one of literature’s great love triangles, are the irresistible Eryn Jean Norvill (Romeo and Juliet) and Chris Ryan (Children of the Sun).
Cyrano de Bergerac is a significant work in the life of STC. This will be our third new production, joining Richard Wherrett's record-setting 1980 season that starred John Bell and Marion Potts' riproaring version from 1999 starring Jeremy Sims.
An erudite, swashbuckling romance, Cyrano de Bergerac is a classic tale of true love and heroic deeds with a healthy dose of nose jokes.
Duration: 2 hours 50 mins (including interval)
Please note: It was recently announced that Sydney Theatre will undergo a name change to be known as Roslyn Packer Theatre Walsh Bay in March 2015. This name change does not affect your tickets to this production. Got questions? Read more.
