In few words:

Blind since birth, Horn miraculously regains his sight at the age of seven: That’s when a voice within urges him to discover the world. Love, joy, tenderness but also injustice are the key elements in this initiatory epic in which the young hero sets out in search of the other and peace. Three singers, a narrator and puppets lead young and old alike on a magical voyage, interspersed with a host of unusual encounters that include a blue giraffe and a three-headed donkey. Le Carrosse d’or and Ars Nova sublimate Joël Jouanneau’s text. The part-spoken/part-sung dialogue along with the score of baroque, jazz and folk music lend a dazzling note to the fable.
