A lush, romantic period ballet based on Rostand’s play, Cyrano tells the moving story of the love triangle between Cyrano, Christian and Roxane. Complex choreography and mime, encompassing humour and tragedy, cleverly depict this story about the power of the written word. With sword fights a-plenty and a spectacular, pyrotechnic-filled battle scene, Cyrano is contemporary classical ballet, with three-dimensional characters and a relevant, accessible story.

‘Masterful choreography’

THE BIRMINGHAM MAIL

‘Cyrano is one of these rare birds, a truly skilled family ballet... with a flowing story, lashings of set opportunities and an atmospheric score’

THE ARTS DESK

‘It sends an audience out... with a warm feeling in their hearts’
