Dream One, “Hark…”

I found a solution for the cheesiness of Theseus’s opening aria, and that is MOAR CHEEZEENESS YOU GUYS!

Seriously: I abandoned the lame attempt at polytonality in his first phrase and settled it into straight harmony, and then extended the first verse.  So now we have a full-on huckster approach, a kind of in-your-face/dare-you-to-diss-this-throwback attitude.

I’ve moved on to Daedalus’s objections, which will be in a kind of waltz mode over Theseus’s 9/8 gigue.
