When storm-clouds shroud the heavens - Aria #4

Last spring we assembled an exciting group of artists for a production of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's THE SHEPHERD KING (Il re pastore) in a brand new translation by Mark Herman & Ronnie Apter, after the libretto by Pietro Metastasio. Over the last few months the singers, orchestra, and creative team have have found new ways to collaborate. Despite being scattered across the country, we have been working on a series of videos based upon the opera.

In our first video release of the series, tenor Rufus Müller appears as a fictitious Alexander the Great envisioning a new world order based upon ideals of the Enlightenment in the aria "When storm-clouds shroud the heavens."
