Original Broadway Cast lyrics : "Overture"

Since the time when ra and isis
Raised the sphinx out of the sand
And apollo dreamed athena

And men began to understand

That when darkness folds on darkness

In the restless tides of night
And lightning raises shadows
And for moments gives them life


It's been said by those who ponder
That it surely is a sign

That a life touched by the stars
Is now running out of time


And that somewhere in that darkness
In the heart of that great storm
The world returns a soul

That the gods caused to be born

And this was such a storm

The kind one rarely sees in life
For in a room now filled with shadows
The great Beethoven was spending
