“Say, why do we two strive to seduce her, why not your mouth and my words together?
For a poet the experience is a tempting dream
You help me, I’ll help you, we’ll be a team!”

His nose is huge. Cyrano, whom nature has furnished with such a monstrosity of a hooter, is otherwise well equipped: he is a superb swordsman and a clever wordsmith. Should he be insulted, he strikes back right on the target and bombards them with ecstatic verses of mockery until they go bright red with embarrassment. His love is also huge, the love he feels for his beautiful cousin, Roxane. But Roxane has already fallen in love with beautiful Christian and Cyrano must act as an intermediary.

And there is a problem. Christian may be beautiful to look at, but he has no wit or way with words. So Cyrano and Christian make a deal. Cyrano will write the most stunning love letters for his rival – he is the spirit and Christian is the body. Or as Cyrano puts it: “She kisses my words on your lips.” Leander Haußmann stages this great love story – ‘Romeo and Juliet for a middle-aged generation’ – between whispers on the balcony and the chaos of war, with quick epees and sharp verses.
