The work of the Renaissance painter, Giuseppe Archimboldo, who portrayed the personalities at the time using fruits and vegetables, was the inspiration to play's aesthetics. The text was an adaptation of the classic ‘'Cyrano de Bergerac''.
Three merchants tell the story of Cyrano de Berinjela, a poet who has a big nose and nurtures a secret love for Rosa. Because he believes that she doesn’t like him, he decides to help the young and handsome Cadet Cristiano De Rabanete to conquer Rosa’s heart.
Maria Clara Machado Theatre Award/2001 – Best Director and Best Play.
"What makes the play so appealing is, first of all, the aesthetic care that accompanies Artesanal since its debut in 1995. The group’s aesthetic care spreads throughout the costume making, the props, the set design and the light design, making it all very appealing. None of that would work, though, if it weren’t for the text adaptation and the immaculate direction. The audience is lucky to witness such impeccable work."
