MUS 1310 - Acting in Opera

Credits: 1

Prerequisite(s) or Corequisite(s): MUS 171A (Applied Voice - any Level)

Description: This course offers a technical foundation in acting for the emerging opera singer. The singing actor is presented with unique challenges to expressive performance such as taking inspiration for the energy and tempo of stage movement from what one hears in the musical score, and learning to master facial and body gesture in a way which is powerfully communicative and at the same time not prohibitive to the process of healthy singing. In addition to acquiring tools to meet these challenges, students learn how to effectively research and develop operatic characters.

Note: This course may be repeated for credit.
