Twenty-five works for the dramatic soprano voice and orchestra; a study guide
Sasnett, Kathleen Beth

2006, Doctor of Musical Arts, Ohio State University, Music.
This document is meant to serve as a study guide of twenty-five works for the dramatic soprano voice with orchestra. Criteria used for inclusion include range, tessitura, orchestral scoring, dramatic intensity, and cultural diversity. There are examples of works dating from 1787 through 2004, and include song cycles, monoperas, monodramas, scena and arias, symphonic rhapsodies, cantatas, symphonic cycles, and lyric tragedies. Adhering to the basic requirement of the piece being suitable for the dramatic soprano voice, the chosen works are eclectic in language, style, ethnic origin, and musical period. A cursory definition of the dramatic soprano voice is included. Information is provided for each listing, including a brief biographical sketch of the composer and the work’s history and lyrics.
