Music Theory through Musical Theatre takes a new and powerful approach to music theory. Written specifically for students in music theatre programs, it offers music theory by way of musical theatre. Not a traditional music theory text, Music Theory through Musical Theatre tackles the theoretical foundations of musical theatre and musical theatre literature with an emphasis on what students will need to master in preparation for a professional career as a performer. Veteran music theatre musician John Franceschina brings his years of experience to bear in a book that offers musical theatre educators an important tool in equipping students with what is perhaps the most important element of being a performer: the ability to understand the language of music in the larger dramatic context to which it contributes. The book uses examples exclusively from music theater repertoire, drawing from well-known and more obscure shows and songs. Musical sight reading is consistently at the forefront of the lessons, teaching students to internalize notated music quickly and accurately, a particularly necessary skill in a world where songs can be added between performances. Franceschina consistently links the concepts of music theory and vocal coaching, showing students how identifying the musical structure of and gestures within a piece leads to better use of their time with vocal coaches and ultimately enables better dramatic choices. Combining formal theory with practical exercises, Music Theory through Musical Theatre will be a lifelong resource for students in musical theatre courses, dog-eared and shelved beside other professional resource volumes.
The high art and irresistibility of opera meet the immediacy and accessibility of musical theatre in a balance perfectly struck for this widely adapted tale of sexual conquest and intrigue. Melpomene is pleased to make a fitting offering of vocal selections from Caluori and Steppe's Dangerous Liaisons. Pierre Choderlos de Laclos' 1782 novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses (like the later novels The Phantom of the Opera, and Les Miserables) is a work poised between two worlds. On the one hand, the stature of classic literature. On the other, a wildly popular appeal, captivating a clamoring mass audience. Its immediate popularity, scandal and overwhelming success has since led to a proliferation of innumerable derivations in all genres. Yet, despite the novel's seductive antihero and his wicked, domineering counterpart, its extreme emotions, brilliant comedy and high melodramatic tragedy, no opera or musical based on the lurid classic has been itself called a classic. Until now. A serendipitous match to this two-worlds dichotomy, Johnathan Daniel Steppe (lyrics) and Malcolm Caluori (music) bring backgrounds distinctively attuned to the classical-popular synthesis. The resulting combination brings a vibrancy to the characters and a unique theatrical thrill to their circumstances, establishing Dangerous Liaisons as the definitive musical dramatization of the story. Caluori's dramatic instinct and skilled orchestration informs a score that parallels grand opera. But as a melodist, and in his natural setting of the text of Steppe's sharp and loyal, episodic libretto, he betrays the deep affection for the musical theatre shared by both collaborators. The excerpts contained in this volume have been hand selected by the composer and librettist, and include solos and duets for all voice types. In these pages you will find neither your run-of-the-mill Broadway sheet music piano versions of songs with a vocal line attached, nor the impractical, if not impossible, piano reductions of orchestration found in so many classical vocal scores. Based on Caluori's original orchestral accompaniment, the arrangements retain their original keys and have been specially adapted by the composer himself, specifically for independent vocal performance with piano. A distinctive (and affordable) joy for professionals and enthusiasts alike.
