PostSubject: My Dream   Mon Jul 20, 2015 4:17 pm

My dream is to have my book turned into a musical. On a similar basis to Les MisÚrables.
I can just imagine in my minds eye singing an adaptation of 'Do you hear the people sing' while marching up through Wales from Milford Haven to engage Richard III in Battle:

Do you hear the people sing?
Singing the song of angry men?
It is the music of the people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes.
Combeferre:
Will you join in our crusade?
Who will be strong and stand with me?
Beyond the barricade
Is there a world you long to see?
Courfeyrac:
Then join in the fight
That will give you the right to be free!
All:
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing the song of angry men
It is the music of the people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes!
Feuilly:
Will you give all you can give
So that our banner may advance
Some will fall and some will live
Will you stand up and take your chance?
The blood of the martyrs
Will water the meadows of France!
All:
Do you hear the people sing!
Singing the song of angry men?
It is the music of the people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes!

Never mind, I can dream.
I have a very good friend who is an opera singer in London and her husband is a director. I've already sowed the seed.
Is there anything wrong with dreams?
The words are so apt to the Welsh dream of the time.

Dreams are often goals and having them front and center are like magnets. Dreams can come true.

I could actually sing along with your words, Llew, so it definitely works! One of my close neighbours is a retired opera singer. She sang at Covent Garden and was a member of Scottish Opera. She and her husband, a member of the BBC symphony orchestra, travelled all over the world as musicians.

I have a vision board with words and pictures of my hopes and dreams. I have checked off a few.

Thanks everyone. Those words from Les Mis are so apt to the people of Wales at the time and the music and the marching beat are exactly what is required. Excepting for a teak or two in the words.
