Franco Alfano: Cyrano De Bergerac

While best known today for having composed the ending of Puccini's unfinished Turandot, Franco Alfano wrote some dozen operas, including Cyrano De Bergerac (1936) with a libretto by Henri Cain based on Edmond Rostand's drama of the same name. It is a moving tale of romantic misunderstanding, swashbuckling bravado and heartbreaking loyalty, in which the eloquent Cyrano feels unable to express his love for Roxane because of his famously protuberant nose - except on behalf of his handsome but inarticulate friend, Christian. When Domingo and Radvanovsky sang Cyrano and Roxane at New York's Metropolitan Opera, Andante magazine wrote: "Incredibly, Cyrano is his 121st role. And it suits him splendidly...Soprano Sondra Radvanovsky was luminous as Roxane, her passionate outburst showing off her powerful upper register to good effect."
