Michigan Opera

Michigan Opera Theater Presents Cyrano

Soprano Leah Patridge sings Roxane and baritone Marian Pop sings Cyrano.

Airs Saturday, November 8 at 12 noon. This three-act opera is based on Edmond Rostand’s celebrated stage drama of 1897, Cyrano de Bergerac, a romantic tragedy. Cyrano de Bergerac, Rostand’s most popular play, blends nostalgia for 17th century French life with swashbuckling heroism, romance, and lyrical verse. Cyrano, a nobleman with a larger-than-life personality, skilled in both the sword and the pen, is physically plain with a rather large nose. Despite his overwhelming love for the beautiful Roxane, Cyrano agrees to help his younger rival, the handsome Christian, to win her heart.
