The Enchanted Island

"Hearts that love can all be broken
How I wish that  prepared you
You forgive, I beseech you
It's too late for me to teach you now!"

A few weeks  ago I saw PBS broadcast of The Enchanted Island,  a baroque fantasy in two acts, written by Jeremy Sams, and inspired by William Shakespeare's the Tempest and A Midsummer night's dream and was stunned by its magical beauty. The production was by New York, Met, in January 21, 2012. The conductor was William Christie.
