Thamos, Count of Thebes, is the last keeper of an eternal knowledge, keeping alive the secrets of the pharaohs. His mission is to find and protect the 'Great Magician' foretold by Osiris, a genius whose works will save humanity. When he comes across Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a genius lauded throughout Europe, Thamos is convinced that he's found the one. But in attempting to instruct the young composer in the Masonic rites inspired by the Egyptian Great Mysteries, Thamos finds himself and his protege in great danger. For the governing powers have no fondness for what they take to be the first steps towards revolution.
