Presented by Nimet Habachy
Duration: 1 hour

This rediscovered verismo gem by composer Franco Alfano—best known for his completion of Puccini’s Turandot—had its belated U.S. premiere at the Met in 2005. Based on Edmond Rostand’s 1897 play (itself inspired by the historic Cyrano de Bergerac), it tells the tragicomic story of a man whose amorous fortunes are hindered by his enormous nose and who decides to use his poetic gifts to help his younger rival win the woman of both men’s dreams. Nimet Habachy explores the music, history, and background of this rarely heard opera.
