Why See Cyrano De Bergerac?
Michigan Opera's masterpiece
Michigan Opera Theatre presents a masterpiece opera, created by their founding director David DiChiera. Cyrano is now one of opera's most enduring figures in the same league as Don Quixote and Don Juan and tells the story of the charismatic swordsman and poet, for whom life is not complete without bashing a few heads together. But his bullying ways are tempered by his unrequited love for his cousin Roxane...who unfortunately is wooed away by his rival Christian.
Cyrano is cursed with an unusually large nose which often attracts the ire and ridicule of others, but which has forced him to become a swashbuckler of great acclaim. An enduring masterwork with some of the most ingenious arias ever written for the stage, Cyrano de Bergerac is a clever and touching story about the power of love, the art of wordplay and the bittersweet joy of discovering love - but all too late.
