Synopsis

Based on Rostand's classic story of Cyrano de Bergerac and set in the Eastern Caribbean in 1957, the show follows the fortunes of Clovis Dibiset, a brilliant Calypso singer and
King Of The Carnival. With his love for his childhood friend unrequited and lost to one of his Calypso partners, Clovis seeks fortune in England, but as he discovers, the London
of the late fifties is a far cry from Trinidad.
