MASTER CLASS WITH VASILY BARKHATOV
ACTION ANALYSIS OF MUSICAL DRAMA
Vasily Barkhatov is musical theatre director and curator of the Territory Festival musical program.
The master class will be aimed at revealing theatricality in music and at discovering the instruments and composition techniques for the author of the music to picture the inward and outward existences of the personages, their characterization, relationships and circumstances, i.e. everything that serves as material for scenic representation.
It was the conductor of Soviet musical theatre Eugeny Akulov who first introduced the musical drama analysis into the system of education. In the master class this principle will be applied to Barkhatov's recent production of Tchaikovsky's Eugeny Onegin premiered at Lithuanian National Opera and Ballet Theatre in April
