Cyrano de Bergerac

This month the upper-graders finished reading the play Cyrano de Bergerac y Edmond Rostand.
Cyrano de Bergerac is about a man named Cyrano who falls in love with his cousin Roxane. But Roxane is in love with a handsome man named Christian. Who will Roxane chose? I won't ruin the story for you. This is a picture of Puccini.

There is also an opera be Franco Alfano. Franco Alfano was the student of Giacomo Puccini. Puccini wrote many operas before. He wrote Turandot, Tosca, Madame Butterfly, La Bohema, Manon Lascaut, and Gianni Schicchi. Those are not all of his operas. He has much more. His Turandot was not finished by him. Franco Alfano finished him. Franco Alfano wrote an opera Cyrano de Bergerac.

Edmond Rostand was born on April 1, 1868 and died on December 2, 1918. He also wrote Les Romanesques.
This is a photo of Edmond Rostand.

Placido Domingo sang Cyrano at the San Francisco Opera this season.
