Sound) create the “world of the play/ballet/opera” for this production? Describe and analyze the

did the aesthetics, style, and period of the design elements affect your understanding and
enjoyment of the performance? What is the genre and style of the play, opera, or dance? How do
the color palette and design details contribute to the storytelling and aesthetics? Please discuss
specific examples. Who are the designers and how did their designs help create the meaning of this piece? You must submit a copy of your ticket stub and the theatre program.
Observe, describe, analyze, interpret, evaluate
This assignment will help you improve your observation skills and descriptive and analytic writing. Through vivid descriptions and thoughtful discussion of the work, you will develop your aesthetic judgment, and expand your critical and creative thinking skills.
It is wise to arrive early enough to read the program before the showbegins. Observe the play with an open mind. Notice the supporting elements, scenery, lighting, costumes, sound, and projection. Recognize that your imagination is limitless. What you see is neither right nor wrong, but valued as your own perception.
Bring a pen or pencil and list words and phrases that capture the energy, mood, story or design of the piece you have just seen. Record images as they occur to you, use action verbs, adjectives and metaphors. This is the raw material that you will use to write your paper so capture as many images as possible.Avoid overused adjectives: nice, good, wonderful, beautiful and avoid hyperbole: the worst, the best, the most.
Be accurate. Check the program for the correct spelling of director’s, designers’, actors’, and composers’ names. The title of a playis underlined or in italics. Use your theatre design vocabulary correctly. You have attended a production of a play, a musical, an opera. Language, spelling and grammar are important, and count toward your grade. Be sure to proof read your paper before handing it in. Reading your paper aloud can help you find errors, and having a friend proofread is also helpful.
