Instrumental and voice students of the early music course MUS184A retell the masque of Comus. Comus, son of Bacchus, is a god of revelry and nocturnal dalliances. He comes across a young lady lost in the forest. His magical powers render her unconscious and bound to a tree. Entering at the last moment, her brother tries to save her, but it takes the superior powers of the spirit Sabrina to save the day.

Music by George Frideric Handel and Thomas Arne.
