THE GREAT PARTY
For joy attacks, wear twice.
The celebrations for his daughter’s marriage with the warrior take place at the Raja’s royal gardens. The preparations have lasted months and every detail has been taken care of. Delicious goodies enlivened with spectacular dancings, elephants that cheer on hanging gardens, contortionists taken from the earth’s remotest bounds… everything continues as scheduled, except Solor’s sudden escape before the Great Brahman… (Act III, scene I)
