Program Notes

The piece opens on a dark and rainy night in the city. The Hero and Villain are meeting, as is customary on this day of the year, to uphold the truce they agreed to so many years ago; a truce that brought the city peace it had almost forgotten. This truce came at a cost to both sides, the Hero having lost the trust and faith of his beloved city, and the Villain having lost his true love at the hands of the Hero.

Tonight was expected to be just like every other meeting: they would shake hands, the truce would be upheld, and life would go on as normal. But that expectation is shattered when the Villain ambushes the Hero, his henchmen appearing like wasps from behind every dark corner, shouting and cursing the Hero as they batter him again and again By the end, the Hero is left collapsed in a heap, the Villain laughing before delivering the knockout punch... .
