We’ll be gathering in the wide open park of Kenneth Hahn – to create and listen to… the sound of music!
We play excerpts from the best operas, ballets and musicals, inspired by Shakespeare, composing our own movement pieces in response.
- Mendelssohn – A Midsummer Night’s Dream Wedding March
- Danish composer Niel Gade – Hamlet Overture
- Prokofiev – Romeo and Juliet
- Dvořák – Othello Overture
- Verdi – Macbeth
- William Walton – Henry V
- West Side Story, Kiss Me Kate, Boys From Syracuse, Something Rotten
- We will learn a traditional 16th Century Dance, applying to music above.
- We will explode out of structure and do freestyle movement juxtaposed against Renaissance style music.
ACTING EXPERIENCES (Scenes & Song with live instruments supporting)
- Two Gentleman of Verona
- Antony and Cleopatra
