Cyrano—swordsman, poet, musician and philosopher—loves his cousin Roxanne, but his larger-than-life nose prevents him from telling her. When Roxanne begins to fall in love with the young guardsman Christian, Cyrano puts all his talents into helping Christian woo Roxanne.

Michael Kahn directs one of the most loved plays of the last century, described by one critic as “the greatest theatre piece ever penned.”
