Synopsis of the immersive theater experience Opération Citadelle:

"Paris, 1965. For several months, the entire capital has been on the alert. The government, the prefect and the police are on their toes. Their torment? An elusive individual, known by the nickname "Croquemitaine", is kidnapping intelligence agents of all nationalities. They are found in the street, their minds lost in an indecipherable fog. Brigadier Avril has been instructed to keep an eye out for them during his rounds of the Trocadero district. The information gleaned suggests that the lair of the "Croquemitaine" is not far away. Suddenly, unusual street activity catches his attention. A shadow has just entered a derelict mansion. Any anomaly is suspicious and needs to be checked: the doors of the house are open, so Avril decides to continue his exploration. On the second floor, he discovers a strange-looking corpse... And there's more to come.

The plot takes you right from the start: who is the murderer of Georges Tito, the renowned archaeologist made famous by his book"The Wrath of Anubis"? In the grandiose setting of this mansion, once the hub of Parisian soirées and the scene of a tumultuous love affair, spectators are invited to follow the evolution of the characters or to conduct their own investigation. Every nook and cranny of this mansion, left abandoned for over a year after the mysterious disappearance of Georges' wife Nina, tells part of the enigma.

But Opération Citadelle isn't just a play... It's a journey through the memories and secrets of a house once known as La maison du bonheur, a vibrant place of gaiety and festivities, which saw the decline of its owner after the departure of his wife. It's also an opportunity for theater fans to interact with the characters, influence the course of the story, and perhaps solve the mystery surrounding Georges Tito's death.
