Cyrano: What’s a beautiful young woman to do when she’s being wooed by two – one of whom knows just what to say but is too afraid to address her face to face? In David DiChiera’s tragicomic opera, the only thing standing between true love and the tender-hearted duelist and writer Cyrano is his prominent nose. Or so he believes. Despite his prowess with the pen and the sword, love eludes him. Cyrano lends his poetry to his more handsome rival to aid this suitor’s romancing of his beloved. The beautiful Roxane is seduced by the poetry of the words, but her true suitor remains unknown to her. Falling for the wrong guy has heartbreaking consequences.
