Cyrano de Bergerac

Cyrano de Bergerac


by Edmond Rostand

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?


Though there are no explicit sex scenes in Cyrano de Bergerac, that doesn’t mean it’s not implied. Lise, for example, is cheating on her husband with a musketeer, and Roxane is the object of desire for both Christian and Cyrano.

But, like we said, there's no actual onstage hanky-panky.
