The Musical and Personal Legacy of William Byron Webster

Cyrano deBergerac

5 act opera

William Byron Webster identified with and was deeply moved and inspired by the story of Cyrano deBergerac — a tragic and heartbreaking story of a man of good heart and transcendent soul who had a great love only realized at the end of his life. Not the first to tell this story with music, Webster’s 5 act opera presents the deBergerac story with operatic musical emotions that reach out and touch the heart of the audience in a very special way.
