The nose that launched a thousand quips

In wordplay and swordplay, Cyrano de Bergerac has no peer.

He is a man's man who can speak as eloquently of battle as he can of love - even though the latter has eluded him. Cursed with an enormous nose, he has resigned himself to experience love vicariously. And so, despite his feelings for Roxane, the beautiful heiress, he agrees to court her on behalf of his handsome friend Christian, who learns by heart Cyrano's urgent, amorous poetry.

Richard Roxburgh returns to STC to play with customary panache the title role, adding his interpretation to a stellar roll call from across the years including José Ferrer, Gerard Depardieu and Steve Martin. He is joined by Eryn Jean Norvill (Romeo and Juliet) and Chris Ryan (Gross und Klein).

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.

We can't wait to revisit this wonderful tale that proves once and for all that the brain is our greatest erogenous zone.
