Description:

    Pandora's Lament is a dark production written specifically for smaller bands that features an exotic and mysterious soundtrack based on the mythology of Pandora. The opening of Pandora's box released chaos into the world with the culmination of this show focusing on Pandora's sorrow as she realizes that her temptation has released evil into the world. This lamentation is highlighted in Mvt 2 with an expressive and engaging moment for the winds to shine. 

    The closer's finale brings tensions to a climax as Pandora and the band attempt to get the evil spirits back into the box. The tables turn however and both Pandora and the band fall victim to the evil spirits, with several options available to create an ominous surprise ending!

    This show was originally commissioned for the fall of 2020 and was released for the 2021 season.
