Program Notes

Prisoner of the Ring is divided up into four sections, The Conquistador, the Woman, Dance of a 1000 Demons, and The Ritual. During The Conquistador, the music paints a picture of adventure, courage and nobility. However, the greatest prize is The Woman, whom the Conquistador leaves a ring as a promise of his love and desire to return one day. Unfortunately, the ring is cursed with 1000 demons, and the love between the Conquistador and the Woman allows them to break free from their prison. The 1000 Demons enslave the Woman in The Ritual, but the Conquistador arrives soon after and a grand finale begins. The ending leaves the battle unfinished … it is up to the audience to decide who wins, the 1000 Demons or the Conquistador.
