THE AUTHOR’S AND BROADWAY VERSIONS OF “MAGDALENA” BY H. VILLA-LOBOS: COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS

W. Kettle
Price: 50 руб.
 The article is devoted to the textual analysis and comparison between the two versions of the music-theatrical work by H. Villa-Lobos – “Magdalena – A musical adventure”  (1948). The problem of comparing the two versions of “Magdalena” – the author’s one (close to the opera genre) and the version adapted for Broadway (as a musical) – is solved in this article in two ways: through the fxation of changes in the original text, and through the analysis of these changes in terms of drama – in the libretto and music. The example of No. 1 of the frst Act shows the destruction of the composition and drama by the co-authors of Villa-Lobos, who adapted “Magdalena” for Broadway, and considerable simplifcations of the musical text, which completely changed the work as a musical whole.
Key words: H. Villa-Lobos, “Magdalena”, Brazilian opera, American Musical Theater, 
Broadway, autograph, full score, reduction for piano and voice.
