Amaluna invites the audience to a mysterious island governed by Goddesses and guided by the cycles of the moon.
Their queen, Prospera, directs her daughter’s coming-of-age ceremony in a rite that honours femininity, renewal, rebirth and balance which marks the passing of these insights and values from one generation to the next.
In the wake of a storm caused by Prospera, a group of young men lands on the island, triggering an epic, emotional story of love between Prospera’s daughter and a brave young suitor. But theirs is a love that will be put to the test. The couple must face numerous demanding trials and overcome daunting setbacks before they can achieve mutual trust, faith and harmony.
Prospera is a shaman with magical powers, but she is very much driven by
human emotions. The welfare of her daughter is her most important concern. She
knows she must let Miranda find love and make her own way in the world, but
she can use her powers to influence the way this comes about, and she will
always be a protective force in her daughter’s life.
Miranda is a girl on the brink of womanhood. She’s a romantic, full of fun,
enthusiasms, dreams and mischief, who revels in the stimulating world of
Amaluna with all of its rich traditions, culture and splendid flora and fauna.
Prospera has a hand in conjuring up the storm that leads to the arrival of a group
of young men, and she influences the events that bring their leader, the dashing
Prince Romeo, and Miranda together. He is as hungry for true love as she is, but
he doesn’t yet know how difficult the path ahead will be.
Half-lizard, half-human, all jealous, Cali has known Miranda all her life and
although she thinks of him only as a pet, he is in love with her. And he’s
determined to prevent Romeo from winning her.
The Moon Goddess has a strong female presence in Amaluna. She uses her powers sometimes to help and sometimes to hinder the young lovers in their challenge-filled quest for happiness.
