A scene from Shakespeare - in the mouth of a seaside cave - note revelers near the water's edge - ominous flash of lightning at far right horizon - on the ceiling of the cave a conjurer envokes a vision of a group of attractive young maidens doing a shawl dance in the company of a peacock - at left stands a romantic young couple - the young woman is enamored of the young man - he on the other hand has his eyes on the magicians handiwork. (Jim Hahn 01/18/95)
