L’Opéra Fabuleux (The Fabulous Opera) Should we believe in Fate and if yes, is it possible to outrun to our own destiny ? Why some beings seem like be snatched by the black unfortune infernal spiral when others are blessed by the holy light and chance ?

Should we believe in Fate, and if yes, is it possible to outrun our own destiny? Why do some human beings seem to be snatched by the black unfortunate infernal spiral when others are blessed by the holy light and chance?

Is there an antenatal determinism or should we believe that fortune or misfortune are promised to the random social or geopolitical conditions of birth? Or again, do we undergo only the consequences of our own “good or bad” actions, judged and punished by a supranatural entity? The whole concept of “L’Opéra Fabuleux” visual series and novel is a philosophical study and odyssey about how birth origins can heavily hang over one’s mind and soul and over the whole life of any person being born or grown in unfortunate and unfavorable or tragic conditions. All psychological studies show how there is only very little chance, if any, to escape from a destined life of disaster and social discrimination. The only hope seems to be the chance to get a strong character with a furious desire to survive and to come across helpful people and real friends at the right moment… But it can happen!

Should we believe in FATE?

“He was just dreaming about a normal life, but his fate offered him a Fabulous Opera…”

This is the Story of Derek Rose:

Derek Rose was born in tragic conditions in Cambodia during the Civil War and the terrible Khmer Rouge Army’s abuses, making about 2 million victims in Cambodian population. His mysterious and inconvenient birth origins, which had to be kept secret by any kind of means, led him to an immediate death sentence by the Khmer Rouge leaders. For a while he was saved, hidden and brought up by a poor rural Cambodian family until all the family members paid, by their own lives, the price of their insubordination. Traumatized, the young child was exfiltrated by a French NGO but became an amnesic. Unfortunately, in France, for some reasons, his birth origins again had to be kept as a State secret. Consequently, all of his past was definitively erased and a brand-new identity was given to him when he was entrusted to the orphanage where he grew up into a definitive hard situation leading him right into insanity. Then Derek had to undertake a long and very difficult way of complete reconstruction to rescue. From a total loss of identification and civil decline, a homeless life and everyday/everywhere dangers, Derek could only be saved thanks to the infallible friendship of a mysterious young fellow who patiently helped and gave him back the taste of life. Throughout an extraordinary destiny and a lot of twists in the drama, Derek bravely learns every key aspect of life, fighting against all pretences to find the difficult answers to his existentialist questions. Finally succeeding in becoming a famous international photographer and founding his own family, he is still far to imagine how much life could be unpredictable…[Official Website]
