Degree Information

Description

Recital presented at the UNT College of Music Recital Hall in partial fulfillment of the Doctor of Musical Arts (DMA) degree.

Notes

Aboulker’s operatic works present an opportunity for opera workshop programs in
the United States to perform contemporary operatic works in a foreign language,
revitalizing the operatic repertoire and giving students the opportunity to prepare and
perform roles without the weight and influence of signifcant performance history.
Aboulker’s style, which has been called “effectively simple,” allows developing
students to work on new French language repertoire without the burden of excessively
difficult or atonal vocal lines. Aboulker’s works are tuneful and humorous and her
longest operatic work lasts a mere hour and a half. These qualities also serve to
mitigate the challenge presented to the student by the French language. Many of
Aboulker’s works are conceived specifically to be performed with piano only, or
have already been published in piano reduction. Most of her operatic works are
very short or divide easily into scenes that could be performed separately where
the performance of a longer work is either not feasible or not desired. All of these
characteristics combine to make the operas of Isabelle Aboulker a viable repertoire
option for the university opera studio.
