Students will be involved in further study of the pronunciation, articulation, and enunciation of the German language in order to fully convey the emotional expression of operatic singing to ensure a clearer understanding by the audience. This subject continues to develop students’ understanding of the phonetics and phonology of German and the use of the International Phonetic Alphabet. Students will hone their capacity to accurately and appropriately reproduce the speech sounds of German in a sung environment to achieve maximum effect and comprehension. This study of German language will be applied to specific role(s) that students may be undertaking in the operas being performed during the semester and/or to other operatic repertoire.
