    Review: Take Effect on The Adventures of Florian

    Michael J. Evans brings us an extremely detailed effort for his 7th release on the Navona label, where he presents a modern adaptation of the Henry Beston fairytale of the same name.

The Adventures of Florian

An epic, modern adaptation of Henry Beston’s fairytale of the same name. Over the course of four orchestral acts, Evans reframes the story as a tale of trans heroship, with Prince Florizel marrying Florian himself presenting as a boy, rather than revealing Florian as Isabella.
