"A Long Time Ago" (or "Menkaure") Aria for Tenor (Range: E3 to Bb4) from the American, contemporary opera Menkaure Duration: 3:15 Music and Libretto by James Nathaniel Holland BRIEF SYNOPSIS: 6,000 years ago an almighty ruler died in Aksum. But today he lives for one woman,Trista,who falls in love with his statue at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. She is pulled deep into obsession, and her family is unable to rescue her; she tries to kiss the statue's face, and is arrested. With a quest to find the statue's twin, she flees to the country Joondor, site of the ancient city of Aksum where she is ultimately consumed by her love for Menkaure. In this aria, inthe third world country of Joondor, Trista and her guide Consaladas have come to a dead end in their search for the statue of Menkaure. That is, until a mysterious figure appears from the shadows, Hamlak the Prophet. Sung here as a character piece but can be a powerful aria for a dramatic, stentorian voice. Available orchestrated with parts too.
