Advanced Opera Performance Voice 2 - VSAO5604

Year - 2018

This unit continues the development of singers' technical and performance ability in line with developing individual artistic sensibility towards that expected of professional performers. Singers will become increasingly aware of the inter-relationship of diction and poetic/dramatic aspects of repertoire with musical, performance and cultural context. Self-sufficiency in practice, repertoire learning and role choice, is expected. Emphasis in repertoire is given to the integration of vocal technique with character and role building, including stage movement, gesture, and the imaginative communication of narrative, emotion and meaning.
