Le Cahier noir

The Black Book of Father Dinis

NB: TICKETING HANDLED BY RESPECTIVE VENUES

The mysterious and captivating, almost magical, fate of an orphan and his young nurse at the dawn of French Revolution.

The story of the adventures, in the twilight of the eighteenth century, of a singular couple formed by a little orphan with mysterious origins and his young Italian nurse of a similarly uncertain birth. They lead us in their wake, from Rome to Paris, from Lisbon to London, from Parma to Venice. Always followed in the shadows, for obscure reasons, by a suspicious-looking Calabrian and a troubling cardinal, they make us explore the dark intrigues of the Vatican, the pangs of a fatal passion, a gruesome duel, and banter at the court of Versailles and the convulsions of the French Revolution.
