What you have available to download here are Sibelius-6 and pdf files of the full score of the opera. The total duration is just over two hours, including spoken text. All the text is from Shakespeare's original play (reduced by about 50%), and the music is written with young singers and players in mind.

There are separate staves for the various percussion instruments, snare drum, cymbals, timpani and tubular bells. The advantage is that on Sibelius you can hear the percussion parts played back as they should sound.

For anyone wishing to perform the opera, I will supply a score with just one stave for percussion - a more desirable format for a Director wishing to hire one percussionist, rather than three.

You can also view and download here a score of "Highlights", which is about half an hour long in total, and easier to dip into for samples. It may be helpful in giving a flavour of the opera.

Please contact me at if you would like any mp3 sound-files or separate instrumental parts emailed to you. I would be happy to discuss modifications to the score with any Director
