"Routledge focus"Includes bibliographical references and index.Staging A Vulnerable Voice : Weill and Brecht's Der Jasager (1930) -- Binding the Voice : Ficarra and Whittington's The Empress's Feet (1995) -- Staging Thought in Satie's Socrate (1919)"Staging Voice is a unique approach to the aesthetics of voice and its staging in performance. This study reflects on what it would mean to take opera's decisive attribute-voice-as the foundation of its staged performance. The book thinks of staging through the medium of voice. It is a nuances exploration, which brings together scholarly and directorial interpretations, and engages in detail with less frequently performed works of major and influential 20th century artists--Erik Satie, Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill--as well as exposes readers to an innovative experimental work of Evelyn Ficarra and Valerie Whittington. The study is intertwined throughout with the author's staging of the works accessible online. This book will be of great interest to students and scholars in voice studies, opera, music theatre, musicology, directing, performance studies, practice-based research, theatre, visual art, stage design and cultural studies"--Description based on online resource; title from digital title page (viewed on December 22, 2021).
