But in the chaos of modernity, his young life is marked only by restlessness, maddening insomnia, and an adolescent apathy. Ietsy loses himself in the immediate pleasures of body and mind.

Louis XIV invited guests to the spectacle hosted in the freshly enlarged and dolled-up gardens of Versailles from May 7 to May Alcine, a seductive and powerful sorceress, uses her powers to bewitch warriors, whom she keeps prisoner on her enchanted island, among them Roger and his brave knights. Fitting the theme, Versailles was transformed into a mythical and enchanted fairytale-land. They did not have too much time to prepare everything and felt the pressure of a fast approaching deadline, yet what they created put the whole court in awe…. Louis XIV, still in the role of Roger, showed the court to the stage set up in the gardens, where shepherds and shepherdesses surrounded by fauns danced and sang to the music of flutes and violins.
