LIBRETTO BY LAURENT GAUDÉ
Performed in French
In 1212 groups of very young people, girls and boys alike, coming from both Germany and France, set out spontaneously along the roads of Europe and headed for Marseille in order to travel to the Holy Land. This spontaneous action, that historians were to name "The Children's Crusade", was not decided upon by the Church. Fearing to see his authority challenged by the very existence of this march, Pope Innocent III rapidly decided to forbid it. The children nevertheless continued on towards their tragic destiny carried by a force as compellingly beautiful as it was terrifying.

Laurent Gaudé's libretto, set to music by four young composers from the Paris Conservatoire, underlines both the children's innocence and the horrors of fanaticism and indoctrination even when they wear the mask of purity.
