The crafty art of opera : for those who make it, love it or hate it by Michael Hampe( Book )

18 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and German and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Opera is nowadays performed worldwide. But as an art form it is little understood by performers and audiences alike. "The Crafty Art of Opera" wants to change that. Here, Michael Hampe brings glimpses of the director's work to a wider audience, uncovering the many techniques and rules that should inform an opera's staging: the need for singers to know their orchestra, the importance of space around singers, the gestures of languages, what we all can learn from Mozart, and the primacy of sense over effect, to name but a few. He shows how stories, through music, become tangible and real. Packed with many anecdotes from the author's luminous career, this book is dedicated to opera-lovers who want to understand 'how it is done'; to opera-makers who want to better understand their craft; and, last but not least, to those who loathe opera, in order to prove them wrong. Eminently readable, it brings both insight and wit from a life spent in opera as director and teacher. - MICHAEL HAMPE is an internationally acclaimed opera stage director. "The Crafty Art of Opera" was published in German as "Opernschule : für Liebhaber, Macher und Verächter des Musiktheaters"
