Synopsis

A woman bard is unheard-of in Ancient Gaul - but when the mothers in Asterix and Obelix's little village decide that besides being a terrible musician Cacofonix, the local bard and school-teacher, is not educating their children properly, it's Bravura they call in. The men of the village are horrified at first, but Bravura proves a useful ally in countering Julius Caesar's secret weapon - the Roman leader has sent in a troop of female legionaries, relying on the chivalrous Gauls not to fight women. But Bravura has no such scruples, and together with Asterix thinks up a good idea. Even Cacofonix's music comes into its own ...
