On Poverty and Wealth


In ‘Tales of Moonlight and Rain’ Oka Sanai is regarded as a samurai with a peculiar fondness for money. One night he gets a visit from a tiny man, who introduces himself as the spirit of gold. The two exchange thoughts on their theory of wealth until dawn. Drawing musical inspiration from Eric Satie’s 1892 first Sonnerie de la Rose + Croix, ‘Air de l’ordre’, this song serves as a coda for the show. ‘On Poverty and Wealth’ will be a message of hope and an encouragement to do whatever your heart desires.
