A safe job with a powerful archbishop is nothing in comparison to the adventure of life. Especially if the illustrious gentleman who holds the purse strings expects blind obedience from his “servants”. At times, a rebellious disposition can make a man’s fortune. It surely makes that of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who leaves the court of Salzburg and moves to Vienna where he performs before all the crowned heads. His fame spreads all over Europe. He also meets his love, Konstanze, whom he decides to bind to him for ever. But Mozart is the chosen one, his destiny is laid out. Thamos, the Count of Thebes, must help him on his path to the highest levels of Freemasonry. The safety of the world is in the hands of the man of music.In a Europe where the winds of revolution are already blowing, someone thinks that Masonic Lodges are a peril for the establishment. However, Mozart does not intend to give up: the Light is in him and he must follow it.
