We are pleased to announce the release of the volume Le th√©√Ętre musical de Luciano Berio for the publishing house L'Harmattan, Paris. The two-volumes publication includes the proceedings of the project ¬ęLuciano Berio‚Äôs musical theatre¬Ľ, which took place between 2010 and 2013 in Paris and Venice on the initiative of D.M.C.E. (Dramaturgie Musicale Contemporaine en Europe), University of Paris VIII in collaboration with Centro Studi Luciano Berio and Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venice.
The two volumes, edited by Giordano Ferrari, explore and analyse chronologically Luciano Berio‚Äôs six major works of musical theatre (in the first volume, Passaggio, Opera and La Vera Storia; in the second one, Un re in ascolto, Outis and Cronaca del Luogo). Each section, dedicated to a single work, is featured by a documentary text that offers a general overview of the sources, the structure, the history of the performance and the state of research on the composition; and it‚Äôs followed by essays that explore in-depth Berio‚Äôs theatrical world on different perspectives: musical analysis, dramaturgy and scenic space, the relationship with the tradition, and Berio‚Äôs collaboration both with the authors of the texts and with all other persons involved in the productions.
