Cyrano story guide



ACT I  |  ACT II  |  ACT III




Roxane's garden, a week later
Roxane reads 'Christian's' numerous letters and is transported. Cyrano arrives bearing another, and Roxane praises Christian as a great poet, a statement with which Cyrano is forced to agree! De Guiche arrives and tells Roxane that there is rumour of war and that he will marry her that evening. Roxane begs Cyrano to help her. Cyrano begins another letter but Christian informs him that he no longer needs his help and attempts to woo Roxane alone; however, she is dismayed to find her great poet's lovemaking not of the same calibre as his letters, and she runs inside. Cyrano manages to save the situation and tricks a Capuchin Monk into marrying Christian and Roxane. De Guiche returns but is delayed by Cyrano who, disguised, pretends he has fallen from the moon. The wedding over, Cyrano unmasks and the lovers appear. But their joy is cut short as the drums of war sound.
