The Promise is a musical drama with a full existing score by Dalmazio Babare.

Vikala's husband died three years ago and for three years she has remained pregnant.

EXTRACT: When I awoke my fever and husband were gone but my belly had grown three times its size. For the child's sake I betrayed no tears and spoke no word of grief/ My husband had carried me when I could not walk, he wooed me when I was sure I couldn't be loved- And in death he gave me a child - I have come in search of them both.
