Cassandra, the older sister of an aspiring novelist and playwright, seeks to convince her sister, Jane, to include music in her upcoming theatrical productions. Through story and song, many fictional scenarios are introduced as the ladies discuss how music might be a larger part of their performances in the future. Inspired by the film adaptations of Jane Austen’s work, we bring to life the 18th-century music featured in those works. Approximately 20 minutes.
