Summaries

  • A flying bumble bee introduces the orchestral piece "Flight of the Bumble Bee". An unnamed orchestra plays the piece on a darkened set, the literal spotlight shone only on the musician or musicians featured during different passages of the piece. The bumble bee then flies off to Mexico, where a young man, with the assistance of a pipe playing boy, serenades a bouquet gathering señorita, who coyly plays hard to get. But she truly wants her serenader to get her, as she wistfully sings a love song in private to the tune of "Tales from the Vienna Woods". He may only know her true feelings if he catches her singing her song.

  • A bumblebee opens an orchestra's playing of "The Flight": we see violins, flute, cellos, and bassoon lit so the faces and instruments are visible against a sea of black. Then, the bee takes us into a garden where a woman picks flowers. In comes a mule bearing a boy and man; the man sings and the woman ignores him. Then, she, alone in the garden, sings. She then imagines him with her, dressed in formal wear, in a garden dancing and singing in front of the orchestra. It's light opera: she a soprano, he a tenor. They embrace.

  • Performances of three well-know compositions. An orchestra plays Flight of the Bumblebee. Carlos Ramírez sings The Donkey Serenade with a boy on penny whistle. Finally, Ramírez and Lucille Norman sing lyrics to Tales from the Vienna Woods.
