In a world of dreams and enchantment, the shape-shifting Ariel toils to thwart Caliban's quest to reclaim his island, his love, and to murder the sorcerer, Prospero. A do-or-die battle of wits, wills and spells, and an inquiry into the mystical power of Grace.
Caliban and Ariel live on an island born of Shakespeare's imagination, a magical, equatorial territory. The orchestra for this piece includes percussion instruments from around the world -- Berimbau, Quica, Kalimba, Guiro -- creating trancelike rhythms and a wide, colorful musical pallet. There are also arcs of harmonic movement, counterpoint, episodic structure, theme and development, evoking an innocent
world invaded and pervaded by a European Duke, Prospero.
