The Historical Moment is here - The composing starts
|Posted September 20, 2010 by Sivi Uitto 1 Thumb-up|
Finally we have reached the moment when the composing can start! As you know, our tool will be the Musescore.
It is ask to use piano score and vocal parts as a template. The first task is to compose the dialog from the first scene. It is preferred, not to compose an ouverture yet, that we can do when we know how the following scenes take form.
The characters are:
Gabriel - Bass
Gazardiel - Mezzo Soprano
Jophiel - Lyrical Tenor
Bastianel - Soprano
Lucifer- Dramatic Soprano
Oscar Wilde - Baritone
Joan of Arc - Mezzo Soprano
Voice of God - Choir
Nephili/ Giants - Choir
The Operatives wish all the composer a very inspiring time, with this historical moment!
The Characters have been chosen

The operatives had a meeting and we decided that the geniouses are:
Joan of Arc
Although there were many interesting suggestions we finally decided that choosing three geniouses instead of four would benefit the story. The combination of two artist and one war hero and a saint feels original and inspiring.
We also had to think about the rest of the characters because in the original synopsis there are so many that we don’t have enough singers to play them. We thought that instead of four guide angels we could have two, Jophiel (Illumination) and Gazardiel (New beginning). There would also be Gabriel and Bastianel. These singers could play other roles in the second and third act.
Lucifer is naturally a very important character as the antagonist of the story so he/she would be the forth lead role. The giants could be played by the choir.
We also thought that voice of God could be played by the choir. That could be a powerful way to demonstrate that God is something more than just a person, that it could be in fact in everything and in everyone.
So here are all the characters,
Oscar Wilde (male)
Joan of Arc (female)
God (the choir)
The Giants (the choir)
