The material in this piece comes from my opera Enchanted Island, based on Shakespeare's The Tempest. The opening idea is throughout associated with Prospero, and particularly (towards the end of the opera) with his most famous speech, "we are such stuff as dreams are made on". Perhaps one could imagine Prospero as a magician guitarist, dreaming these variations.
