Calliope and the other muses continue the story of "Hercules and the Golden Apple". Based on the advice from Hemmingway, the Old Man of the Sea, our hero travels to Egypt to find instructions for the next part of the journey to the Garden of Hesperides. But to get those instructions he has to ask the great Sphinx three riddles. Her riddles are never easy, but the Greek Chorus travels with him to help him out. Does he get to the Garden? Can he retrieve the apples? What does he do about Hera's hundred-headed dragon? You'll have to listen to find out.
Original book and lyrics by P. Haines-Ainsworth. Music by Terence Alaric Levitt
