Description - Singing, Acting, and Movement in Opera by Mark Clark
Singing, Acting, and Movement in Opera: A Guide to Singer-getics is especially designed for use in opera and musical theatre workshops on the university level, and by beginning professional singers. Drawing on years of research, teaching, and performing, Mark Ross Clark provides an overview of dramatic methodology for the singing actor that encourages the student's active participation, with practical exercises and applications to well-known opera excerpts. The Singer-getics method emphasises the integration of the various dimensions of opera performance, creating synergies among vocal performance, character development, facial expression, and movement on the stage. The book presents important information about stagecraft, characterisation, posture, historical styles, performance anxiety, aria, and scene analysis. Excerpts from interviews with performers, directors, conductors, coaches, composers, and teachers offer insights and advice, allowing the reader to "meet the artists." This lively book will appeal to students, teachers, professionals, and general readers alike.
