Moby-Dick

Description: For theatrical momentum, the opera favors Melville's linear "chase story." The opera expands the role of Queequeg so that he becomes for Ishmael a more prominant, benign balance to Ahab. Some of Ishmael's and Pip's philosophical meditations are included, to serve as purely lyrical interludes.
Length: 02:30
Total Acts: 3
Chorus: TTBB chorus as ship's crew; SATB Greek chorus
Orchestration: Standard orchestra, plus organ
Ballet/Dance: Acrobat/Gymnast
Musical Style: Number opera; tonal; bitonal; atonal; some sea shanties and sailors' work songs, with words provided by Melville, composed in the style of the period
