Six artists have been recruited to CoDi Opera – a development pathway for composers. Guiding them through the process will be: composer Robert Fokkens and writer/dramaturg Sophie Rashbrook, supported by soprano/composer Sarah Dacey.

Bethan Morgan-Williams, Eloise Gynn, Ethnie Foulkes, Gareth Olubunmi Hughes, Jasper Dommett and Rebecca Horrox have been selected for CoDI Opera. Through a series of workshops, composers will be given the tools to work confidently with text and narrative – moving from scenario, through libretto to writing for voice.

 

PATHWAY OUTLINE

Session 1: SCENARIO AND LIBRETTO

A session on scenarios: looking at how they are devised and constructed, and considering the relationship between the scenario, the libretto, and the score.

Session 2: SCENARIO TO LIBRETTO

Exploring approaches to libretto writing and the use of text more broadly in music theatre.  

 

Session 3: LIBRETTO AND MUSIC

A practical, hands-on session, firstly looking at the libretti the participants have created; then working with soprano Sarah Dacey on the musical material they have created so far.

 

Session 4: MUSIC AND STAGING

Putting the music together and exploring how the piece might be staged.
