Cyrano de Bergerac

May 2 - May 13 Buy Tickets from $27

The comedy/tragedy of Cyrano de Bergerac and his beloved Roxane, a love story for the ages, comes alive in this rediscovered operatic gem, which packs the power of full-blooded Italian verismo. The title role is a signature part for the charismatic star tenor Roberto Alagna, performing it with the company for the first time opposite Met favorite Patricia Racette, who plays his secret love. Marco Armiliato conducts.


Co-production of the Metropolitan Opera and Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London
