"The Legend of Kale-

setting of A. J. Seymour's
epic poem by Philip Pil-
grim was originally per-
formed in 1944 and had its
second set of performances
during the Republic Cele-
brations of 1970.
It was one of the recom-
mendations of the Writers
and Artists Convention of
10O that the "Legend of
Kaieteur" be presented
along the lines of the ori-

choreographed dances. This
is being planned for the
CARIFESTA production.
The orchestral part which
was originally scored for
three pianos will now be
re-arranged for a steel or-
chestra and two pianos. The
arrangement is being done

which will consist of 150
voices. There will be two
