“This Day of Days” – Triumph of Love
Music: Jeffrey Stock Lyrics: Susan Birkenhead
On this day of days, listen to this lofty number in which Hermocrates and Hesione prep Agis to overthrow Princess Leonide. When love is added to the picture, however, it complicates matters. Pierre de Marivaux’s commedia dell’arte play served as the basis for this philosophical musical where one can probably guess that love is ultimately triumphant.
