ZORINSKI. English, Country Dance Tune (whole time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Zorinski was a three-act play by Thomas Morton [1] (1764-1838, who wrote The Children in the Wood) staged at the Theatre Royal, Hay Market, in 1795, about Stanislaus. It was soon mired in controversy. After the debut the playwright was accused of plagiarizing passages from another play almost word-for-word, and that the plot was based on that of an ealier play, Gustavus Vasa. It may have been because of these criticisms that Morton changed the name of his own play to Casimir, King of Poland in June, 1795.
