Cyrano de Bergerac
THE CITIZEN (Coming down with his son)
Great actors we shall see to-day – …
A VOICE (in the gallery)
Lights! Light the lights!
THE CITIZEN Bellerose, l’Êpy, Beaupré, Jodelet – (I. 31-33)
THE BOY (To his father)
Are the Academy
I see some of them…there’s Boudu –
Bolssat – Cureau – Porchères – Colomby –
Bourzeys – Bourdon – Arbaut –
Ah, those great names,
Never to be forgotten!
Look – at last!
Our Intellectuals! Barthénoide,
Urimédonte, Félixérie…(I. 60-66)
A MUSKETEER (Advances quickly to Cyrano, with outstretched hands.)
Monsieur, will you
Permit me? – It was altogether fine!
I think I may appreciate these things –
Moreover, I have been stamping for pure joy!
(He retires quickly.)
CYRANO (To Cuigy)
What was that gentleman’s name?
Oh…D’Artagnan. (I. 487-491)
