BONJOUR MES AMIS AND WELCOME TO LA FETE DE LA MUSIQUE !
Oui, oui, mes petits, the sounds of jazz, rock, reggae, rap, classical, hip-hop, and pop music shaking the stone walls of the French capitol WILL last all night and ARE guaranteed to suck you from your seat, out onto the streets and into the cafes, bars, restauraunts, parks, and churches celebrating the arrival of the summer solstice. On this, the shortest night of the year, you will party with priests, punks, and poodles – for everyone is invited to what must be the world’s largest musical block party.
The festivities start before sundown, when kids in cars blast all manners of music from their speakers. The corner cafe normally half-full of slumped over commuters in search of a quiet glass of wine is suddenly jammin’. The jukebox is spitting out Edith Piaf tunes, the waiters are humming as they tuck their fingers into their black vests and sway along to the music, and les Parisiens are locking arms with all as they dance along city sidewalks and waltz beneath the stars that twinkle above Le Louvre.
La Fete de la Musique is a celebration of song that would make Apollo, god of music, proud. It’s a celebration that Cupid never misses, a party fit for the god of love, who is the hero in « Matching Wits With Venus ». Trust me, this Cupid is not your mother’s Valentine’s Day cardboard cut-out.
For centuries Cupid has longed to be more than Venus’s arrow boy. When he’s sent to eliminate “Happily Ever After by Amelia”, the matchmaking business threatening Venus’s status as the goddess of love, Cupid decides to steal Amelia’s methods and make his own matches. While spying on Amelia, Cupid accidentally shoots himself with his magical arrow and falls in love with her. But bereaved Amelia doesn’t believe in the existence of Roman gods, and she’s certainly not looking for romance. She’s too busy perfecting the patented personality profile that’s made her Hollywood’s favorite matchmaker.
Disguising himself as a mortal financial advisor, Cupid manages to break through Amelia’s guarded exterior. As their passion deepens so does Cupid’s guilt about deceiving Amelia. Cupid’s interference with Amelia’s life causes her business to falter, leads to a sterile spring that threatens the animal kingdom, and shatters the longstanding peace between the Roman and Greek gods. With the fate of the natural and under worlds at stake, Cupid must decide whether to reveal his true identity and risk losing the chance to live happily ever after with Amelia.
