English Translation

The musical is the story of a great mind, Louis Braille, a young blind boy who wanted the same chance in life as those who see. It is the story of a people - "the people of the night" - and their fight for independence. Louis' struggle, and victory, were to lead his people to the gates of literacy, and so, of knowledge and culture. It was their journey into the light.

THE STORY

SYNOPSIS

Inspired by the true story of Louis Braille, this musical is the story of a revolution and an heroic fight for independence, with the themes of difference, freedom, hope and love and the triumph of human values over adversity.

In Paris in the 19th century, blind people were victims of profound discrimination. Louis Braille, a bright young mind with a mad dream, arrives at the Royal Institute of Blind Youth, searching for the same chance as everyone else: to be free and independent. But he soon discovers that people and things aren't always what they first seem. By sheer determination and courage he stumbles upon something revolutionary: a simple idea, a genius invention, a legacy.

Two hundred years ago, Louis Braille changed the world by inventing the tactile system of communication, the Braille alphabet, liberating the "People of the Night" and introducing literacy, knowledge and culture to a people who were otherwise trapped. It was their journey into the light.
