The legend of Queen Alemandine transcends time, era, race, religion. It speaks to all classes of all ages. It whispers quietly of love. It tastes bitterly of betrayal. It navigates the human spirit, reflecting youthful dreams and elderly regrets. It is the folk music which sings in the heart of all who love, the child's painting seen by eyes perceiving beauty in every stroke. It is the dancing heart and the broken spirit each in turn felt by those who truly love. It's in your trembling hand, it's in your aching heart, it's in your unshed tears.
