Summary
Divided into three narratives. First section is set around the first decade of the twentieth century in the Ardennes, where Count Forbeck unveils his architect's design for a utopian city. In a modern day mirroring of the first story, a group of professors now inhabiting Forbeck's castle seek a new form of education through the use of the imagination, under the guidance of a guru named Guarini. The last segment depicts a Wagnerian fantasy landscape of kings and dragons, which arises from the imagination of the children of some of the professors at the school
