Metropolitan Opera: Cyrano de Bergerac


Duration: 2 hrs 53 min

Back in 1897, Edmond Rostand wrote Cyrano de Bergerac which finally premiered on January 22, 1936. What's interesting is the way the play is written, in the form a verse with no more than 12 syllables per line. Ever wondered, where the word "panache" came from? Thank this play for introducing the word into the English language.

Two of the most famous English translations of the play are produced by Brian Hooker and Anthony Burgess.

The play consists of 2 acts spread over 3 hours.


A talented poet and swordsman named Cyrano de Bergerac falls with his cousin Roxane, discreetly. What's more, he thinks he is ugly owing to his very large nose. Roxane, being very intellectual and beautiful, has more than one admirers waiting for her. Watch the rest of this comical tragedy unfold, under Marco Armiliato direction.

Conductor: Marco Armiliato

Composer: Franco Alfanii
