"Sport for Jove's Cyrano de Bergerac packs enormous clout... it is little short of magnificent. Highly recommended."
Sydney Morning Herald
Written and premiered in France in December 1897, this is one of the greatest plays the world has ever known. Poetic and theatrical, this award-winning production from Sport for Jove will be an absolute thrill.
Cyrano de Bergerac is a finely crafted romantic comedy exploring the love-triangle between Cyrano, a poet and soldier with an impossibly gigantic nose, who loves the beautiful Roxane but lacks the courage to tell her, wooing her instead through the good looks of a young hero, Christian.
Cyrano de Bergerac is relevant now for the same reasons Shakespeare is – its ideas and concerns are simply and profoundly human. Hilarious, action-packed and deeply moving, Cyrano de Bergerac is a complete theatrical masterpiece and will be an unforgettable experience.
Sport for Jove’s 2013 production returns after playing to sold out houses and standing ovations every night of the season, one of the most memorable pieces of theatre in Sydney in the past decade.
