Drawing on Catherine Weate s extensive experience as a voice coach, Classic Voice provides a comprehensive preparation for the vocal demands within classical texts. It includes warm-up ideas, exercises to experiment with sound, word and rhythm and detailed workshop plans using specially selected extracts from classic plays. Always practical, this book will supply directors, lecturers, teachers, trainers and coaches with the tools they need to easily integrate vocal work into their rehearsals, classes or seminars. Greek Tragedy, Elizabethan and Jacobean Drama and Restoration Comedy three theatrical styles in western theatre history which challenge actors vocally are given a particular focus. Classic Voice not only investigates the original requirements of texts from these periods but also deals with how to make sense of them for the contemporary actor in a clear and accessible way.
