Thus another famous story from the Old Testament will be drama- tibzed to music in this Increasingly popular program of the air. Faithfully following the Old Testament account, the narrative offers more effective plot situations than any of the preceding programs. The incident of King Ahasuerus' choice of Esther as his wife; the discovery by Mordecai, her uncle, of the plot against the king; and the characterization of Haman, who cunningly took credit for saving the life of Ahasuerus, all serve to set the stage for the dramatic ending. Appropriate selections from, the classics played by a symphonic orchestra and an A Cappella choir will provide the musical background.
