This Spoils the Ending
In the Play In the Movie
   This does not happen. The Duke tells Roxanne that Cyrano went too far, she disagrees and says her friend Cyrano took no pleasure in killing Viscount Valvert. The Duke says she must break off her friendship with Cyrano if she is to get a marriage proposal from the Count.
   As the battle continues, Roxanne collapses and is carried away by the Count. Cyrano rallies the Cadets to hold back the Spanish until relief arrives. Cyrano and the rest of the soldiers join the battle; many are killed or wounded.
   Cyrano denies writing the letters then dies after Roxanne says she loves him. He dies in Le Bret and Ragueneau's arms Cyrano denies everything then collapses. Roxanne professes her love for Cyrano and kisses him. Cyrano then dies in her arms as Roxanne cries.
   De Guiche, arrives at the front and chastises the cadets; the cadets hate the Count. Cyrano responds with his usual bravura. Count de Guiche signals a spy to tell the Spanish to attack the Cadets. He tells the cadets to hold the line until they are relieved. Count de Guiche decides to send the Gascon Guards (including Cyrano and Christian) on a dangerous attack that is likely to kill them. He does this by delivering a letter to the Guards.
   It is a stage play. The film is a musical.
