Product Description

The Glint of Gold has been designed as a fully performable musical production but, being topic based, is easily adapted into an invaluable classroom teaching resource or a shortened assembly piece incorporating any other work the children may have done on the topic such as paintings, designs, costumes and models etc.

Set in November 1922, the story begins with Howard Carter's famous discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun. Along with Lord Carnarvon and his daughter Lady Evelyn Herbert, Carter enters the tomb and is astounded by the treasures buried for over 3,000 years. Before long the visitors discover the story of this little known king through the writing on the walls of the tomb. These story telling pictures are called hieroglyphs and in this play they come to life, teaching us all about Ancient Egypt. Tutankhamun, who had rested in peace for thousands of years, is now awakened and with our help needs to learn part of the "Book of the Dead" before he can join his father (the god Osiris) among the stars.

The CD is fully orchestrated with backing tracks and includes nine musical numbers covering a variety of important topics hieroglyphs, Queen Hatshepsut, Egyptian society, the gods and pyramids.
