Prologue Cleopatra chants to the gods, summoning the God Wadjet, protector of the Pharaohs. With his kiss comes ultimate freedom and a place with the gods. He slowly appears in the form of a snake and slithers across her breast, before taking a human form. Wadjet holds Cleopatra firmly in his arms, drawing her closer. A shaft of light suddenly breaks through, revealing a golden throne. This is the throne of the Egyptian Pharaohs and that of the Ptolemys – Cleopatra’s family.
