Because she refused to obey her father, a young girl in love is locked up in a tower.

Upon her release, she discovers a world ravaged by conflict and misery. To find her prince, our heroine gives way to listening to her desires and confronts a general who knows only how to sow chaos.

Olivier Py’s fourth show inspired by the Grimm brothers, L’amour vainqueur is an operetta in which five characters – a willful princess, a disfigured suitor, an evil general, an eco-friendly gardener and a dishwashing girl – take us in white alexandrines into their adventures made of love, transvestism and struggle. In this show for children, the author and director combines with spirit the pleasure of musical theater and the awareness of a troubled world: ours. He responds to despair with fantasy, to war with song, so that love, in the company of actors, singers and musicians, may be victorious.
