Manon: A Performance Guide (Vox Musicae the Voice, Vocal Pedagogy, and Song; No 7) (English and French Edition) by Mary Dibbern



Mary Dibbern, Music Director of Education and Family Programs at The Dallas Opera, and adjunct faculty member at the University of North Texas has created a Performance Guide for Massenet's opera "Manon." This contribution to the Vox Musicae series presents a word-by-word translation and IPA transcription of the dialogue and recitative versions of the French libretto, and her translations of its literary sources trace the opera libretto's development from Abbé Prévost's short novel, "L'Histoire du Chevalier Des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut." Nathalie Paulin, internationally recognized interpreter of the title role, presents her insights into interpretation of this opera's controversial heroine. This well-rounded volume is designed for use by singers, vocal coaches, conductors, producers and directors, as well as opera-lovers.
