Le Cheval de bronze, an opéra-féerique in three acts, derived from the tale “Les Sept Fils du Calender” in The Arabian Nights, unfolds in Shantung providence in a fairy tale China of long ago. The magical Bronze Horse of the title, appearing mysteriously on a nearby hill, will transport any man who climbs onto its back to the planet Venus, home to group of female sirens, led by the lovely Princess Stella. If the traveller in space can resist the sirens’ advances, he can return to earth with the lady of his choice; if not, he is whisked back alone, and turned to stone if he speaks of his experiences…
