Zuleika: The Musical
'Zuleika' is the soundtrack for a romantic musical comedy/rock opera about a globe-trotting magician who is irresistably attractive. Describes love with all it's hope, joys, and pains. A roller-coaster ride of emotions with one hour of music. If you have ever stayed awake at night desperately dreaming about someone, this is the album for you. If your whole happiness has ever depended upon whether or not someone else will be happy to see you, this is also the album for you. But if you think love is always fun and games and ends like a fairy tale, this is not the album for you. And if you think love is something to be taken up and put down between sips of champagne and bites of caviar, this is also not the album for you. Love can soothe like water and cut like a knife. 'Zuleika' is about a magician who plays foolish tricks, who toys with men's hearts. Blue skies can turn cloudy depending upon whether she smiles or frowns. Zuleika is a magician who makes the impossible seem not only possible but within reach. In the blink of an eye, the curtain comes down and the magician vanishes. She will never reveal her secret to anybody, especially to those who dare love her.
