"I am constant as the northern star,
Of whose true-fixed and resting quality
There is no fellow in the firmament.
The skies are painted with unnumbered sparks,
They are all fire, and every one doth shine;
But there's but one in all doth hold his place.
So in the world: 'tis furnished well with men,
And men are flesh and blood, and apprehensive;
Yet in the number I do know but one
That unassailable holds on his rank,
Unshaked of motion; and that I am he,
Let me a little show it, even in this:
That I was constant Cimber should be banished,
And constant do remain to keep him so."

Another Open Air production with big themes demanding big orchestral sounds. This show was a pleasure to write music for, the themes in the text of love, hatred, friendship, betrayal and fate sang a melody all of their own. My job as composer was to tap into that melody, and to make it audible.

The production was directed by Stella Gheury de Bray for the Richmond Shakespeare Society and featured a virtuoso performance by Richard Rudd as Caesar.

Julius Caesar (MP3 - 2 mins 18 secs - 1.15 Mb)

A short orchestral composition inspired by this production is available for download on the manuscripts page.
