In 17th century Paris, at a time of political turbulence, there lived a flamboyant, swashbuckling, gallant hero. The not very attractive Cyrano de Bergerac loves passionately, but silently.
Musicians Rejoice! And... the music gives singers opportunities to flex their dramatic and vocal muscles, to sing high and low without grovelling in the laryngeal nether regions. A children's chorus gets to process a la Sound of Music and bring it all to a celestial finale, Singers Rejoice!Patricia Kelly, The Australia, October 7, 1994
Melody after Memorable Melody -- intricate and breathtaking in scope. He is a genuine master!Iain MacDonald, The Argus, Capetown SA, October 13, 1994
It has some truly memorable and melodic music which can stand on its own, the mark of a good musical.Peta Koch, Courier Mail, October 17, 1994
Australia has an extraordinary composer in David Reeves. What he has done with Cyrano is beautiful.Mary Nemeth, Australian Financial Review, October 17, 1994
The music feels the story. That is the strength of Reeves' music. It is melodious, it has strong rhythmic pulse, but above all, it reflects the mood of the words. I particularly warmed to Roxanne's song "About You."
Barbara Hebdon, Sunday Mail, November 8, 1992
