Act One Scene 1b - Sky Scientist aria and Dressing aria

Amelia's two back-to-back arias from Act One are sung here by Kerry Ginger (supported by Erin Anderson as Nina and Kent Trostel on piano) at the opera's preview performance on September 18, 2011 at The Great New England Steampunk Exhibition in Fitchburg MA. Amelia, the Queen's niece, has been sent to a floating reform school for finishing, where she finds herself surrounded by rough pirate lasses. Amelia dreams of being an airship pilot, a sky scientist... and a pirate. Words and music copyright 2011 Mary Lin and Ben Sargent.

Favorite line:

"Copernicus and Hubbel, Huygens, Halley

Order'd and assign'd the stars in the clockwork sky

Astronomy sings to me."
