Set in the opulent world of European Grand Opera, just before World War I, the story follows a great baritone's retirement and his young protégée's rise to fame.
Shortly before the Great War, celebrated singer Joachim Dallayrac suddenly announces his retirement from the stage, leaving the opera world stunned. Dallayrac retreats to the country, devoting himself to training two young singers, the beautiful Sophie, who falls in love with him, and Jean, a singing thief who falls in love with Sophie. An international singing competition will lead either to fame and riches--or to the jealous Prince Scotti's revenge against Dallayrac.
