In the dark of night, the one man sneaks through the streets of Paris. His mission? To rescue anyone doomed to a cruel and untimely death. He and his small band of friends together manage to defy the Committee of Public Safety and all of the Parisian mobs. The year is 1792, and the man has come to be know across the continent as the Scarlet Pimpernel.
Back in England, during an opera, a sly man walks into the opera box of the wealthiest, most popular woman in the country. Suprising her, he states his business. Either she will find the identity of the Scarlet Pimpernel, or her beloved brother will be sent to the guillotine for treason.
Welcome to The Opera Box. My site has been designed to give people a better understanding of what, or rather who, the Scarlet Pimpernel is. It has lots of information, not only about the book, but also about historical events during the time period. My site also has info about the movies, and a short section about the play, which I have not, as of yet, gotten to see. I hope my site has proved to be helpful to you. Please email me any comments you have, or sign my guestbook. I always love to hear comments! By the way, if you want to get back to this page, just click on the logo on the top of any page.
