The Show within the Show: Diegesis in American Musical Theater
Back by popular demand! The Boston Conservatory’s Christopher Caggiano once again takes MetrowWest seniors on a tour of American musical theater.
In this class, Caggiano will talk about “diagesis” – a musical technique in which the singer tells the story in the context of the show, versus singing in character. Think “Bill” in Show Boat or “Do Re Mi” from Sound of Music.
Explore the “show within a show” technique while watching clips from some of your favorite musicals.
Sponsored by North Hill, Massachusetts’ senior living leader.
