Description

The story of 17th Century unrequited love fills the Eternal Cyrano de Bergerac, based on the title character of a play—a Parisian poet of phenomenal verse and an equally large nose—that has endured the ages. In this version, the musical storyline is lifted to a modern city, with an urban funkiness permeating the show.

Mvt. 2: "Cyrano: The Mighty Swordsman and Lonely Poet" commences by showing off his vitality and swordsmanship skills, being brash and swashbuckling. But the oppression he feels by the hideous site of his monstrous nose, and the ache he bears for discerning love has passed him by is heard in the poignancy of the music that captures the desperation that accompanies his love for his cousin Roxane that is not returned.

Mvt. 3: "Secret Love for Roxane" is quite melancholy and tender. Cyrano chooses to hide his love from Roxane. Think of billowing soft pastels as there is much the guard can do to express this sense of loss.
