The beautiful Lady Roxane is in love with the dashing cadet Christian de Neuvillette, and so enlists her cousin, the poet and soldier Cyrano de Bergerac to deliver her intended a love letter. Cyrano's an extraordinary man, blessed with a big heart, a big mind... but an even bigger nose.

This hilarious and heartbreaking story of one man's truly self-sacrificing devotion, set in 17th-century France, has been made famous to modern audiences through stage and film interpretations. This production, choreographed by David Bintley for Birmingham Royal Ballet, has a specially commissioned score by Carl Davis.
