For this show I composed for the two very different worlds of As You Like It, the court of the Duke and the swamps of Arden. In this 1840s Louisiana version adapted by director Jane Page, we instructed a group of actors to perform all of the compositions for the Arden swamp including three songs written by William Shakespeare included in the text. Jane included a fairy godmother character who performed the underscore on guitar which was used at specific plot points to heighten the significance of the romance in the swamp.

My Role:

Blow Blow

Blow Blow thou Winter Wind -
00:00 / 00:00

In this song, members of the Duke’s camp sing to the weak servant and Orlando, that all things in life are not as bad as they seem.

Lover and His Lass

Lover and His Lass -
00:00 / 00:00

This song marks the beginning of the resolution to the narrative in swamp.
