“Cyrano de Bergerac”

Set in 1640 in Paris, this story centers on a gifted poet and swordsman whose doubts hold him back. Despite many talents and a brilliant mind, the size of Cyrano’s nose makes him believe that he is unlovable and therefore unable to profess his love for the beautiful and intelligent Roxane. Meanwhile, Baron Christian de Neuvillete, whose handsome face makes up for his lack of wit and intelligence, sets out to win the heart of the same woman. Cyrano’s lack of confidence causes him to help Christian woo Roxane by wooing her with his words, as if written by Christian.
