The pentatonic scale is also used, as well as changing the tempos of the piece in each section. These elements of this piece make it distinct and obviously from the 20th century of music. Section 4 The use of expressionism in music happened between World War I and World War II. This music was in many ways an expression of the composer’s feelings, which were not always positive feelings. It did not set boundaries for the type of emotions conveyed and no feelings were euphemised.
The purpose was to show that you should not be dishonest especially if you are a ruler. The theme is that not everyone is your friend and that you cannot trust everyone. 11. If you were to design a set for this play, what comes to mind immediately? What colors would you use?
The story of Romeo and Juliet is a typical love at first sight plot but includes various other aspects that make the story interesting and different to other movies or stories with the same basic plot line. For example, there are many outside complications that are stopping them from pursuing their love as well as a surprise twist at the end to conclude the legendary play. Zeffirelli and Luhrmann decided to go in two completely different directions with how they were going to portray the tragedy that is Romeo and Juliet. Zeffirelli decided to go down the classic route and put the entire play, including original script, on screen with a few line changes. However, Luhrmann decided to modernise the story has much as he could by changing the setting and having the actors portray the characters in a different style compared to the play.
Rodger and Hammerstein 's Oklahoma! changed the form of musicals. By writing the music around the book, artists were able to focus more on stories, and how the music would support these stories. Along with Oklahoma!, shows that followed, such as Carousel, Kiss me Kate, and Guys and Dolls, used music as a means to further the story or a characters arch. Musical 's content during this time period were very different from their predecessors.
Following Charles II’s coronation, there was an artistic renaissance in England with a preference for “scenery to poetic illusion, heroic couplets to blank verse… They demanded music, dancing and masques in the latest French styles.” To this end, The Fairy Queen was created, a semi-opera with “singing, dancing and machines interwoven, after the manner of an opera.” To clarify, a ‘semi-opera’ is a term which was used to apply to Restoration pieces which combined spoken plays with masque-esque episodes which employed the use of singing and dancing characters. When music occured in these masques, it was typically following either a love scene or that of the supernatural. The first examples were the Shakespeare adaptations which were produced by Thomas Betterman with music written by Matthew Locke. Following Matthew Locke’s death a second flowering produced the semi-operas of Henry Purcell, notably King Arthur and The Fairy
If it is, then you must accept it and try --if at all possible-- to improve yourself. If it is not, then you have absolutely no reason or excuse to allow it to rattle you. Personally, if I were a dancer I would consider any negative feedback I got more as a reason for remaining in the world of ballet rather than leaving it. Why else would anyone leave, you
We can see that Shakespeare relates the young love to impulsiveness and rush and represents how this is lamented. Finally, the last external aspect that influences their love, but not the least important, is the fate. It seems that from the beginning their fate is marked by external aspects, so they are not the responsible of their tragedy. The play starts with the introduction of the term ‘star-crossed lovers’ (Prologue). The idea of being “dolls” manipulated by the stars and destine is transmitted along the whole play, even through the words of Romeo and Juliet who have several intuitions.

The Radical Balletic Enhancements of the Romantic and Classical Eras Throughout history, ballet’s evolution has been contingent on the cultural occurrences surrounding the art form at the time. From the passionate stories stemming from the Romantic period to the meticulously formulated stories of the Classical era, the central elements of ballet were crucially varied due to do societal context and time period. A Classical ballet differs from a Romantic ballet due to technological innovations, choreographic tendencies of the era, and influences from the outside world. Romantic ballet, which “flourish[ed] between 1830 and the late 1840’s”, focused on petite allegro, rapid footwork, and thematically emphasized escapism (Reynolds 4). During the challenging times of the European Industrial Revolution, families congregated into bustling cities, inducing challenging living climates for an abundance of people.
In this essay I will be discussing how Lurhmann has evolved these cinematic techniques beginning in Strictly Ballroom, continuing in Romeo and Juliet and finally in The Great Gatsby. Strictly Ballroom was made on a very limited budget but this did not stop Lurhmann using very audacious costumes. His use of specific costumes always has a meaning behind it such as in Strictly ballroom: Fran’s dull and boring dresses that she wears at the beginning of the film, that creates a big contrast to all the ‘over the top’ costumes all the other people wear. Lurhmann does this in order to get people to over look her as a character because she doesn’t stand
