The use of supertitles has become essential to every opera performance. Using the plot and the libretto as a starting point, the emotional content of the music, the conceptual intentions of the music and the staging enter into the wording of supertitles.
The creation of the supertitles for 'Gianni Schicchi' and 'Francesca da Rimini' will be contrasted with each other and with the original translations of Dante into Italian and Russian.
Registration is requred.
