One of Shakepeare's most brilliant descriptions - Cleopatra, seated in a gold-encrusted barge, on her way to tell Antony that she wants him to come to her place, not the other way about, as he'd intended. The music tries to reflect the scene, including how the golden barge "burned on the water", how the winds were love-sick with her perfumed sails, and how pretty dimpled boys tried to cool Cleopatra with divers-cloured fans, but seemed only to increase the glow in her cheeks.
