About the show
In April, we're bringing our Expat theatrebuff friends to see French classic Cyrano de Bergerac, playing at the historically ornate Théâtre Le Ranelagh. Before the show, we will gather in the theatre's lovely bar to share a drink (included with the ticket!) and catch up on all things Paris.
This classic French play depicts the most famous love triangle in history: Cyrano de Bergerac, Christian, and Roxane.
Our swashbuckling hero, Cyrano, complete with his famously-prominent nose, fights against the odds and reveals himself to be just as effective with the sword as he is with his words.
He falls madly in love with his (distant) cousin, Roxane, only to find out that she loves another. Christian, a headstrong young soldier, as handsome as Cyrano is ugly, as dim-witted as Cyrano is sharp, has also fallen in love with Roxane.
