The Storm (Parting of the Twins)


To escape the Archers and Spearmen, the Nursemaid drags the Twin Sister onto a boat and they escape by sea, only to encounter a massive storm that capsizes their vessel. (The boat in the Storm scene weighs almost 1800 pounds and is completely manipulated onstage by the artists.)

The surviving members of the Court desperately flee as the palace burns to the ground. The Court hopes to escape by means of a small sailboat but in the confusion that ensues, the Twins are separated. The Girl sets sail on the boat with the Nursemaid, the Valets and several Imperial Guards. The Boy and the Jester flee by land with the Archers in pursuit.

We follow the Girl and watch as her boat sails into a fierce storm. We hear the choir singing ominously. The small boat rocks violently as the Girl, the Nursemaid, the Valets and other occupants hold on for dear life. The waves aggressively toss the boat about as if it were a toy. Several Imperial Guards are dramatically tossed overboard. The ferocious winds rip off the boat's sail. Finally, the boat capsizes. The Twin Girl desperately climbs to the top of the mast as the boat sinks into the deep.
