Administrative / Biographical History

For his inaugural season as Artistic Director of the Tyrone Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Michael Langham commissioned a new translation of Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac from Burgess. Burgess began work on the translation in early 1970 and, by the final weeks of rehearsal in summer 1971, he had also composed incidental music for the play, which opened on 22 July 1971.
