Characters in Theatre for Orchestra
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Beijing Opera is a form of traditional Chinese theater that combines singing, reciting, performing, acrobatics acting, and instrumental accompanying, along with rich face make-up, costume and stage setting. I applied the pitch material drawn from the fixed instrumental accompanying patterns, the rhythmic material and tone color from percussion ensemble performance, to compose the theme and its development. By Contrasting the legato phrases and staccato phrases, altering the rhythm, and employing various dynamics, I attempted to depict the contrast between majestic males, delicate female roles, and acrobatic, young, male and female characters.
