A musical biography of Napoleon Bonaparte, the vertically challenged Frenchman who created an empire through military cunning and sheer willpower before his forces were weakened by the Russian winter and then destroyed at Waterloo. Napoleon, who comes from a lowly background, crashes a lavish ball. He has come to press the Directors of the government for a command in the army. Then he meets the beautiful, alluring socialite Rose de Beauharnais... Napoleon unveils the passionate love story of Napoleon and Josephine (the name he gave Rose), his turbulent relationship with his patriotic brother, and a manipulative Prime Minister.
