“Darkest Hour” – The Light Princess

Music and Lyrics: Tori Amos & Samuel Adamson

History experienced one of its darkest hours when the stock market crash which led to the Great Depression reached its climax on this day in 1929.  While there was a long struggle ahead for all involved, there was eventually light again.  In this musical version of the Scottish fairy tale by George MacDonald, Princess Althea experiences her darkest hour in this woeful number where she considers suicide as a solution to her problems, but she too eventually finds light again.
