Cyrano de Bergerac was written in 1974 by Eino Tamberg to the libretto of Jaan Kross and it is one of the most beautiful and most widely known Estonian operas.

„The new subject fascinated me with its emotions, ideas and its versatility. One rarely meets such an outstanding and rich character as Cyrano. He has a subtle nature of a poet and he is a bold sword fighter. His scale of emotions ranges from poignant humour to the deepest of tragedies, he is dignified, he does not bow to lords and he scorns cringing. Cyrano knows no compromise when it comes to defending his poetry, he is self-sacrifying as well as vain.“
- Eino Tamberg, Teatrimärkmik 1975/76

Jaan Kross’ witty and soulful text is illustrated by romantic and beautiful melodies and colourful characters. The staging makes use of laconic means to portray the harmony of melody and word, as well as the fireworks of emotions. Details have been used from the set design by Ervin Õunapuu and costume design by Mare Raidma from the performance by Mikk Mikiver from year 1995..
