King Midas in the hands of the gods is an intimate tale told in song about the mythical Midas, who made his mark in history as a very greedy ruler. The gods listened to his requests and bestowed upon him the power of changing anything he touched into gold. This seemingly wonderful gift turned out to be a severe form of punishment. As we have known for a long time, money cannot buy happiness. The musical performance involving singers, a piano and a trombone (as golden as all of Midas’ treasures put together) also tells us why
