Armen is a musical virtuoso. He taught himself to play the theremin, with which he can sing any great aria. His early years are reminiscent of Marcel Proust’s childhood, as they were spent very pleasantly in beautiful gardens under the influence of great ladies, but in Iran, not France. He grew up on picture galleries and the opera, until his beautiful life was interrupted by a great downfall. His life in the United States was therefore an accident, and New York  had the good fortune of ending up with him for a while.
