Ben Crystal, the actor who appears in a video about Shakespearean Original Pronunciation (OP), gave his OP talk in my voice class. He showed us how the iambic pentameter is manipulated to create the rhythm of the dialogue; I got to do take part in that demonstration, reading a snippet from Macbeth 2.2. He performed a sonnet and a few monologues in OP; and showed us what it’s like to use cue scripts using some Three Witches lines, another demonstration I got to take part in.
IT WAS SO COOL
I KNOW, RIGHT?! I don’t really know what to think of it except to be fantastically excited about going and to be thankful for your friendship and support!
