Time & Location

Online Masterclass



Stephen Sondheim’s compositional sound underwent a massive transformation in the decade following A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Bridging Golden Age formal sensibilities in Forum, and later satirical pastiche in Follies, Sondheim’s early scores challenged both traditional theatre-goers and performers alike.

Music theory is normally reserved for the classroom. But here, we're creating a space where actors can use the power of their analysis to inform their performances. 

Week 1: Class Analysis and Discussion 

Week 2: Individual Performances (observers invited to attend)

Join conductor, musical director, and music theorist Adam Roberts and TheoryWorks founder Amy Marie Stewart for the first installment of our new online masterclass series.
