"This is Edmond Rostand's immortal play in which chivalry and wit, bravery and love are forever
captured in the timeless spirit of romance. Set in Louis XIII's reign, it is the moving
and exciting drama of one of the finest swordsmen in France, gallant soldier, brilliant wit, tragic
poet-lover with the face of a clown. Rostand's extraordinary lyric powers gave birth to a
universal hero -- Cyrano de Bergerac -- and ensured his own reputation as author of one of the
best-loved plays in the literature of the stage."
