At the end of the course the students - who do not require a previous disciplinary competence - will have acquired knowledge in the history and evolution of musical theatre in its various forms (from ‘intermedio apparente’ to musical drama, from opera to operetta, from musical to opera-rock) and derivatives (movie, videoclip, etc.).
Knowledge and understanding:
students will develop knowledge and understanding skills through the constant use of different sources (sound and multimedia materials, books and articles of scientific, educational and informative nature, archival documents, conferences, seminars, guided tours, etc.).
Applying knowledge and understanding:
students will be able to apply their knowledge and understanding skills to the critical analysis of their personal experience in music, theatre and entertainment in general, going back to the complex evolution of the relationship between different languages (word, music, image, movement) which is at the origin of musical theatre in its various forms and national peculiarities.
students will develop the ability to collect and interpret data useful for determining independent judgments, establishing relationships and connections between genres of entertainment and different artistic expressions and interpreting them in the light of their relationship with historical, social and economic reality.
They will be able to critically consider their experience, assess the reliability of sources and information, and integrate the acquired knowledge.
the student will put to good use the critical approach to the subject and the interrelation with the teacher and the other students during the lesson to develop the ability to communicate in a clear and well-founded way his personal experience and his reflections both during the lessons and during the exam and in non-educational context towards specialist and non-specialist interlocutors.
thanks to the approach to the subject, which tends to problematic reflection and aims at the development of the critical sense, the students will develop the stimuli and skills necessary to increase their knowledge through further non-occasional studies and also conducted autonomously.
