Info

'The Wasps' is incidental music composed by the British composer Ralph Vaughan Williams in 1909. It was based on Aristophane's ancient Greek comedy 'The Wasps'. Vaughan Williams later arranged parts of the music into an orchestral suite in five movements. The 'Overture' of this 'Aristophanic Suite' is quite concise (about 10 minutes) and is a popular independent concert piece today and except for the opening buzzing, the piece has little to do with wasps or with ancient Greece.
