* MoodDissonance: In Act II Scene VI, Cyrano's heart is broken when Roxane confesses him that she is in love with Christian.

* StarvingArtist: From Act I through Act V (that’s fifteen years), Cyrano’s friends constantly comment on how he rarely eats well. It's not that Cyrano is a bad artist; it's just that he writes satiric letters denouncing false people –- namely, everyone.

[[OverlyLongName Hercule Savinien Cyrano de Bergerac]] -- [[WarriorPoet the legendary poet, duelist]], [[RenaissanceMan soldier, philosopher, physicist, musician, playwright, and novelist]] -- has a problem. He has an [[GagNose enormous nose]], which he believes makes him so incredibly ugly that he thinks no woman could ever love him, and fears his love for [[KissingCousins his cousin]] Roxane will never be reciprocated. Just when he's mustered the courage to hand her the love letter he's written, she announces that she's in love with the beautiful Christian, and asks Cyrano to protect him against danger. Roxane has fallen in love with Christian [[LoveAtFirstSight at first sight]] and tells Cyrano that if Christian isn't intellectual enough for her, she would be so disappointed that she could die. Cyrano resolves to [[IJustWantMyBelovedToBeHappy subdue his love for her]] and tell Christian about Roxane’s love. Christian despairs, because he also loves Roxane, and even though he is very handsome, he's inarticulate, and believes Roxane would never accept him. So, Cyrano, trying to express his love and to not disappoint Roxane, eagerly offers to script Christian's courtship, beginning by giving him Cyrano's own love letter for Roxane. Naturally, [[HilarityEnsues hilarity]] (and swashbuckling, and eventually tragedy) ensues.

There are two notable film adaptations: one from 1950 in English (using the Hooker translation) which garnered a Best Actor for José Ferrer, and the acclaimed [[Film/CyranoDeBergerac 1990 French version]] directed by Jean-Paul Rappeneau and starring Creator/GerardDepardieu (with the Burgess trsnslation later used for subtitles). In addition, the 1987 movie ''Film/{{Roxanne}}'', starring Steve Martin, is a modernized take on the story. The Disney Channel original movie ''Let it Shine'' is also clearly based off of this play, even going as far as to giving the main characters similar names (Cyrano= Cyrus; Christian= Chris; Roxanne= Roxy, whose full name is actually Roxanne).
