    Bluebeard and Other Less Grisly Tales of Love

    Composed of four fairy tales. In the title piece based on many classic and obscure versions of the tale (popularized by Charles Perrault's "La Barbe Bleue"), a young woman takes a long trip away from her home to the palace of her new husband and discovers the secret of his fatal love. In "The Pigeon Bride" (based on a Yugoslavian folk story), a princess who is the envy of countless suitors falls for a feathered guest and learns that the difficulty with loving something with wings is that it can so easily fly away. And in "The Sea Nymph" (from Swedish lore), a young man leaves his true love for the enchantments of a watery temptress. Tied together by the journeys lovers take, "Bluebeard" shows that folklore is obsessed with love as much as we are, which is why we continually return to these stories for guidance and comfort.
