The 'Imaginarium' is a device which allows members of the audience watching the show to get an irresistible opportunity to choose between light and joy or darkness and gloom.
Blessed with the gift of guiding the imaginations of others, Dr Parnassus is secretly cursed, having made a deal with the devil thousands of years ago in which he won immortality.
Centuries later, on meeting his one true love, Dr Parnassus made another deal with the devil, trading his immortality for youth, on condition that when his daughter reached her 16th birthday, she would become the property of Mr Nick.
