They engage the audience by performing as though they were on Broadway. Miranda would take a step back and doing that would put more emphasis on those that are singing. Also, when Lafayette (Daveed Diggs), Aaron Burr (Leslie Odom Jr.), and Hercules Mulligan(Okieriete Onaodowan) introduced each other in the song they would use different voices. Diggs uses a thick French accent and made the audience in the White House chuckle. Onaodowan was using a husky voice that truly defined his character.
His gestures and movement were transmitted to every single induvial. Likewise, the expression of a singer opera adds a positive effect on the audience. In fact, if a singer opera just stand there and sings, the audience would probably fall asleep. for example, is like watching
Countless hours of practice had led up to this. I was in 8th grade, and the orchestra concert was just about to start. There was a feeling of excitement in the air, and I was anxiously waiting for the cue. While the concert may not have been very lengthy, the effort that the orchestra, as a whole, put in to make it happen, was immense. Dozens of class periods, and hours of practicing at home to perfect the few pieces of music we were about to proudly show off to the audience.
Perhaps the most obvious use of audio throughout the trailer was the background music. The song used thought the trailer is Luciano Pavarotti’s Caruso, which tells the tale of a dying man looking into the eyes of a woman dear to him for the last time. The main reason this piece was chosen was its powerful nature as an opera piece. In the book, a prole woman was shown to be singing of her own free will, which Winston associated with the freedom of mankind. Because the prole woman was described as quite large and powerful, the logical conclusion was to use a powerful piece such as Caruso in order to clearly show this point Outside the background music, however, sound effects were also used throughout 1984 in conjunction with the video scenes in order to enhance the atmosphere that was created by the visual effects and content of the trailer.
He talked over the music, and I could always understand what he was saying which was very important because I sat in the back of the theater. Janet van de Graaff was a very interesting character. She was a young bride who was very nervous about getting married. Everyone adored her effortless beauty and superstar status, and she did an amazing job portraying that role. She would sit with her head held high, great poster, and always had a smile.
There were a couple of things during the play that I found unique. The things I found unique during the musical play was that Donkey was a female. In Shrek the movie Donkey is a male. The cast member that played Donkey was very good and was very loud and out spoken just like the male character in the movie. The next unique thing during the play was that the dragon actually sung a song.
It was the opening piece and the orchestra was full of energy, and came out loud and with the bang. It brought a sense of suspense, with the opening bass drum so loud and firm, the audience jumped a little in their seats. You could envision war while listening to this piece, the stage was the battle field, the left side of the orchestra was the Axis Power, the right side was the Allies and the bass drum were the drummer boy. Fanfare for the Common Man was well put together, the orchestra sounded good even
Similarly, in The Great Gatsby, Gatsby's parties are also described with extensive hyperbolism. In Chapter Three, Nick describes that "the orchestra had arrived, no thin five-piece affair, but a whole pitful of oboes and trombones and saxophones and viols and cornets and piccolos, and low and high drums" . The polysyndeton used here by Fitzgerald accentuates the reaction of a child and of awe. The depth of detail of the orchestra provides an insight into the wealth of Gatsby has, and how much he spends on his parties. Nick later goes onto describe that, "the rules of behaviour associated with an amusement park", which appears to be a criticism of the excessiveness of Gatsby's parties.
I kept my hands in my jacket pockets more so to indulge my obsession of feeling the tickets tucked inside than to ward off the cold. There are few things I consider more wonderful than getting to see a Broadway show, this one especially. Miles had surprised me on Boxing Day with orchestra seats to Hedwig and the Angry Inch, a work of art that is very dear to me. I had worshiped the film and was dying to see it live with its creator and originator, James Cameron Mitchell, in the lead role. After witnessing the Tony performance however, I was a little worried what my fictitious idol had turned in to.
It may not seem significant to the audience, but to me, a mere 10 years old, it was a major breakthrough. I finally got the chance to spread the joy and love that I gained from this experience to the audience yet it was so nerve wrecking. As I took up my violin and touched the shrill E-string, I was immersed in the beauty of the music that awed me for years. The nervous thoughts just floated away and all that was in my mind was how to shape the music. The clear, sweet singing melody floated out from my three quarter-sized violin as my chubby fingers flew on the fingerboard.
Angels We Have Heard on High was played at an Allegro tempo that sent good vibes throughout the song. Hark the Herald Angels Sing was played at an Andante tempo that expressed the Flutes who are mostly composed of expression of a choir singing the song. Jolly Old St. Nicholas was played at an Andante tempo and indicated the excellence of the whole band with soothing music. Deck the Halls was played at a Moderato tempo and demonstrated the high’s and low’s of the High Woodwind range. Gabriel’s Oboe was played at a Moderato Tempo and reveals the hidden sound most audiences do not hear due to the low and sweet sound that comes out of the instrument.
This opera was beautiful and simple with one mezzo-soprano soloist and a concerto accompaniment. The opera was interactive with the audience and commedical. The setting was a dinner party involving the musicians and the audience. The hostess told many stories about food and then began telling about her childhood she went to six different vocal coaches but none would have her. Then one day an almost delf, almost blind, ninety-four year old
I have come so far from who I used to be and it is all because of performing. Singing has been my passion ever since I was a little kid. However, when I was younger, I was always shy and never wanted to let anyone hear me sing. After school, I would spend countless hours in my bedroom belting “Part of Your World” to my stuffed animals, but I refused to let anyone, even just my parents, hear my performance. After overhearing me singing, my mom encouraged me to get involved in musical theater.
Audra had feared that her marriage to Maxen might bring to the surface feelings or words of judgment, but those closest to her offered nothing but affection and support. She was the most fortunate woman alive. Hand in hand, Audra and Maxen exited the library. The servants must have been hard at work during the wedding, for her bedchamber was now decorated, too, with holly, thick candles resting on pillars, and fragrant pine garlands. There were cushions spread around on the floor in keeping with the casual atmosphere, and food and drink sat on low trays.
The Moores School Jazz Orchestra and Jazz Ensemble performed the Swingin’ In The Opera House at the Moores Opera House. I didn’t really have any expectations in mind and previous experience would be going to middle school and high school orchestra performances. When I first walked into the Moores Opera House, I saw that everyone was on stage with their instruments. There were chairs and stands also on the stage in front of the musicians. Also when we had walked in they were just playing music and it sounded pretty good.
