The cello, with all its fluidity and smooth tones, reflects the properties of the ocean. This, in turn, ties to Viola's haphazard behaviors. Just as the sea can both create and destroy, Viola finds that her actions can generate opportunities for her, while causing havoc and confusion for everyone else.
We were blessed to have not only a cellist record my music, but also have them perform live onstage as part of Orsino's court. We weaved Carol's music into Orsino's monologues, and even topped it off to introduce the popular first line of the show: "If music be the food of love, play on."
