Here we see the return of the A section, recalling the quicker tempo and sixteenth note based rhythms of the opening. Both melody and countermelody overlap creating an exciting musical texture as the piece pushes to a close.


Three on the isle by hugh m stuart

movement, Song from

Wolking Castle, is typical

of the area where Robert

Burns wrote his famous

poem The Brigs of Ayr.

In the beginning of this award winning musical, the Wicked Witch of the West is dead. No one mourns for her.


I m not that girl

I’m Not That Girl

The rest of the musical takes place in the form of a flashback, before a green-skinned girl named Elphaba became the Wicked Witch. Here, she sings of how the one she truly loves, Fiyero, could never love someone like her.


Defying gravity

Defying Gravity

Society doesn’t accept Elphaba because of the color of her skin. Labled “evil”, she comes to be called the “Wicked Witch”. Elphaba soon discovers those who claim to be good are actually evil. This segment is written with a driving rock feel, which can be heard at different times during the musical.


No good deed

No Good Deed

The Oz guards try to capture Elphaba, but Fiyero helps her escape. He is taken to be tortured. Elphaba tries to cast a spell to save him, but believes she has failed. She begins to accept her reputation as “wicked”.


For good

For Good

After much turmoil and a number of plot twists and turns later, Glinda finds Elphaba and reaffirms the friendship they had formed earlier in the musical. Elphaba convinces Glinda to take over as ruler of Oz. Soon after, Dorothy arrives and melts the Wicked Witch with a bucket of water.


For good1

For Good

Glinda mourns for Elphaba, believing her friend is truly dead. In the end, however, the audience sees Fiyero (no longer under Oz guard custody) open a trap door. Elphaba emerges alive and well and the two live happily ever after.

Atlantis lost city of the ancients by barry milner

Atlantis: Lost City of the Ancients by Barry Milner

For countless generations, the Atlanteans lived simple, peaceful lives. However, greed and power corrupted them. Zeus, after discussing a punishment with the other gods, caused the island to be swallowed by the sea.


Atlantis lost city of the ancients by barry milner1

Atlantis: Lost City of the Ancients by Barry Milner

The Greek god Poseidon was in charge of Atlantis, and he gave it to his five sets of twin boys to run. His theme is heard here, as mysterious as Poseidon himself.


Atlantis lost city of the ancients by barry milner2

Atlantis: Lost City of the Ancients by Barry Milner

We now hear some transition material, as Atlantis transitions from a place of kings, to a place of deceit, greed, and treachery.


Atlantis lost city of the ancients by barry milner3

Atlantis: Lost City of the Ancients by Barry Milner

The destruction of Atlantis begins. Buildings collapse into the sea, volcanos explode, and people succumb to the water.


Atlantis lost city of the ancients by barry milner4

Atlantis: Lost City of the Ancients by Barry Milner

As the last remains of Atlantis sink into the sea, we hear our new ocean drum as the sea calms, with no trace that the once regal city ever existed.
