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

When she gets out, she discovers a world ravaged by conflict and misery. In order to find her prince, our heroine gives way to listen to her desires and confronts a general who only knows how to reap chaos.

Olivier Py’s fourth show inspired by the Brothers Grimm, L’amour vainqueur is an operetta in which five characters – a willing princess, a disfigured suitor, an evil general, an eco-gardener and a dishwasher’s daughter – take us in white Alexandria on their adventures of love, disguise and struggle. In this children’s opera, the author and director wittingly combines the pleasure of musical theatre with the awareness of a troubled world: our own. To his despair he responds with fantasy, to war with song, so that love, in the company of actors, singers and musicians, may be victorious.
