Work Overview

From: Act 2 / Scene 2: The Carnival, a circus opera

As Mischa turns to see that the Mermaids have left, she is met by menacing pink eyes which dilate to form the figure of two Scorpions, ominous contortionists who try to strip Mischa of her clothes and steal her beauty. Throughout Touch Of Sin the Scorpions taunt Mischa however Freckle, knowing their greatest fear, performs a menacing fire routine. Freckle then hands a flaming torch to Mischa who frantically spits fire as the Scorpions cower away.

NOTES: The fire routine, performed by Freckle (violinist) occurs at a repeat from bars 95 - 110. This fire routine, when performed outside the context of 'The Carnival' is optional.
