ABOUT

EXCLUSIVE ASIAN PREMIERE

A dazzling new adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s romantic play

“A celebration of theatrical creativity” ★★★★★ Morning Star
“Perfectly matches the language of love with theatrical make-believe” ★★★★ Daily Mail
“A show that deserves the highest of praise” ★★★★ Arts Desk
“Triumphs magnificently” ★★★★ Bristol Post

Cyrano’s love for the beautiful Roxane is as plain as the GIGANTIC nose on his face.

Cursed with the looks of a clown, he weaves his secret longing into love letters of exquisite beauty that he will never dare to send. All he needs is a perfect nose to match his perfect prose. The handsome Christian has also fallen for Roxane – but while he looks like a god, he sounds like a fool.

Sacrificing physical love for fantasy, Cyrano hands his words of love to Christian to speak for them both. Will Roxane fall for the ‘perfect’ man? Can Cyrano exist with only half her heart? Is true love more than skin deep?

This epic love story, immortalised on film by Gérard Depardieu and Steve Martin, is transformed in a dazzling new verse adaptation by Peter Oswald. This love letter to theatre, directed by Tom Morris (Touching the VoidWar Horse), will make you fall in love all over again.
