A scxene from Shakespeare - In the hall of a great castle a difference of opinion is taking place - an angry young gentleman restrains a young court lady with his left hand whlie he viciously snaps a flail like whip with his right - court ladies and gentlemen look on with some apprehension - an upset dog - musicians perform on their balcony. (Jim Hahn 01/17/95)
