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. This exploration engages 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 and its creators-Evelyn Ficarra and Valerie Whittington.
This book will be of great interest to students and scholars in voice studies, opera, music, performance studies, practice-based research, theatre, visual art and stage design, cultural studies.
