Puccini's Tosca and the narrative and performative aspects of music in opera
Stockholm University.

Abstract [en]

Research on opera was for a long time focused on either structural or symbolic aspects of the music. The purpose of this investigation is to broaden opera analysis by paying attention to the double role played by music in opera, the narrative and the performative. Drawing on theoretical approaches of film music analysis and performance theory it attempts to develop a method of analysis that takes both of these aspects into consideration. With point of departure in Puccini’s Tosca the paper demonstrates how this double role of the music plays a significant role for the construction of meaning in relation to verbal and visual media.
