The men bristle at expressing themselves in verse, but Cyranos poetic soul finds wings! Cyranos illusions of marrying his dear Roxanne are dashed, however, when he sees how much she loves Christian.
Cyrano must now measure the true depth of his love. Will Cyrano help Christian win Roxanne by breathing his poetic soul into Christian? Will he write for Christian? Will he speak for Christian? Will Cyrano sacrifice his happiness to give Roxanne the desire of her heart?
Will Roxanne discover that Beauty is empty entertainment, and she who finds entertainment in mediocrity reveals a bankrupt soul? Let the merriment, the feast, and the melodies work their charm, as together we explore the depths of true love!
