Hey, all . . . first of all, thanks for all the support!

Sadly, my inspiration went "POOF" only a couple of days after this thread opened . . . I'm not going to stop working on it, but I haven't made much progress at all -- my muses hate me these days.

So, I do apologize for that. I am hard at work right now, but it's going slowly and uneasily.

You can do it, Zelda! I KNOW you can do it, love. Pace yourself and break it into small blocks, letting the inspiration flow out of you, segment by segment. It wil seem like it's going by quickly. Seriousdly, I'm taking a class on this stuff so I know it helps.

Anyways, I know you do fabulously and that you can it.

Much love and support,
Chrissy


If I can't hear the music, and the audience is gone,

I'll dance here on my own.

Chrissy, your post makes me smile. I'm all warm inside now! Thank you so much!

Right now, I've got a vision for the unmasking scene in my head . . . five-four time, a very strong percussion section, and the words, "Couldn't be content to hear me? You had to know what I looked like! Are you glad, now, to see? Wench! Serpent! Whore!"

I can also tell you that Raoul is the tenor role, and Erik the baritone role -- rather than the other way around, as in ALW's work. In most operas, the romantic hero is a tenor, while the villain/anti-hero is a baritone; and I wanted to keep it like that.

Anyway, I'll keep y'all posted.

Actually, according to a few interviews, ALW had originally meant for Erik to be played by a baritone and Raoul by a tenor, hence the reason why Erik doesn't have to hit any high 'C's. However, once he decided to cast Michael Crawford, it became a bit of a tradition to have mainly tenor Eriks. After all, in the original Sydmonton cast, Clive Carter (a lyric tenor with a very high range) played Raoul, while Colm Wilkinson (who had a darker timbre) played Erik.

The interesting thing, though, is that Erik has to hit higher notes than Raoul no matter what the actors' voice types are. It's kind of like Sweeney Todd in that way -- although Sweeney is almost always played by a baritone or bass, he has to go a half-step higher than Anthony (who is usually played by a lyric tenor).


It's wiser to be mad... in a world that's gone insane!

Yes! Baritone Erik! I love you! I've always invisioned him as more of a baritone anyway. Tenors, IMO, don't have as much power and suport sometimes. I mean they CAN but it's easier to see in baritones/basses.

Keep on trucking with this! You can do it!

Zeeeelda!

I love your idea and I hope this goes well! Finally some justice for the phandom publically and musically. I hope it goes well, slow going or not. Just keep on working on it and don't give up!
