The Organ Grinder's Playlist Vol 4

 
'Olden Times'

I made up a basic story to go with the music, the music doesn't fit it exactly scene by scene or anything, and there are a few songs that might not quite fit but I enjoyed and thought they suited the style of the playlist. The basic mood fits in with the different acts of the imaginary play/ opera.

Act I

In the dark of the night, under a full moon dance, a witch falls for a mortal who stumbles upon their revels, although their love is forbidden.
