A Takarazuka Grand Romance

The Rose of Versailles: Oscar


PART I

The story takes place in the last half of the 18th century in France. General Jarget’s wife was expecting their sixth child. The General loved his five daughters but was praying with all his heart for a son. When his wife gave birth to another daughter, the General gave her a boy’s name, Oscar. He decided to bring her up as a boy.

Oscar grew up strong and brave. She became the commander of Queen Marie-Antoinette’s Royal Bodyguard. Oscar cut a gallant figure in the Court and was respected for her superb swordsmanship. The Ladies of the Royal Court idolized Oscar and the Queen herself held her in high esteem.

Oscar’s subordinate, Andre was a grandson of Oscar’s nurse and was brought up along with Oscar as if they were real brother and sister to each other and became a bosom friend of her. But now he was secretly in love with Oscar as a woman. He knew his love to her was a hopeless love.

The people of France had become disgusted the idle, luxurious lives of the aristocracy. The influence of the Bourbon dynasty was declining at home and abroad. Oscar resigned as Commander of the Royal Bodyguard. She hoped to save her beloved France from the coming upheaval by leading a roaming sentinel guard made up of a group of rough and ready fighters.

The toughest of the gang, Alan de Soison, was a penniless aristocrat. He couldn’t accept a woman as leader. Oscar challenged Alan to a duel, defeating him and was accepted by all as the sentinel’s leader.

One day Oscar met Alan’s charming sister, Diane, who spoke eloquently of the misery of the people of Paris.

Oscar was so moved that she spoke directly to King Louis XVI. The King was enraged by the suggestion that he help the people. The King ordered the National Congress to dissolved. The members refused to obey. Civil riots began to break out one after another throughout the country.

PART II

The situation in Paris became chaotic and control was rapidly slipping out of the government’s grasp. General Jarjet now deeply regretted his decision to raise his daughter Oscar as a boy and later to install her as commander of the Royal Bodyguard. He intended to make his daughter happy as a lady by arranging her marriage with major Jerodel.

Andre learned of the marriage plan. He had been secretly in love with Oscar for over ten years. In despair, he decided to put poison into Oscar's wine and then to take his own life as well. But at the last moment he couldn't bear to think of his loved one suffering and he could not go through with it. However, later on the evening before they were due to go into action against the armed rebels, Oscar learned of Andre's love for her and realized that she had found true love.

Beside the river Seine Oscar made every attempt to prevent a violent incident. But the King's troops opened fire on the citizens and started a bloody battle. Oscar, in spite of Jerodel's objections, threw her support to the citizens and fought against the King's soldiers. During the course of a long battle Andre was shot and then Oscar was gravely wounded.

A white flag appeared over the castle wall. With the victorious cheers of her fellow citizens ringing in her ears, Oscar quietly breathed her last.
