Genre et identité dans le théâtre anglophone (Spectaculaire | Théâtre) (French Edition)
Thus the reference to Swedenborgian philosophy, which asserted that simple forms are more perfect than more developed ones. See Alfred Jarry, Ubu, ed. For fifteen to twenty minutes, chaos reigned. This is the limit! Few theater critics who wrote about the performances found space to discuss the score. But it also includes literary melodrama and literary marionette traditions. From the above we see that the puppetry influences on Ubu roi ranged from a popular, fairground style to an avant-garde, literary mode.
Pierre Larousse, vol. The production of Ubu featured a host of famous visual artists, known collectively as the Nabis, who worked on the unorthodox stage design. And Jarry had called upon Claude Terrasse to provide a musical score for his creation, which was rather substantial in length, even if mostly comprised of short snippets. First, the composition of the intended orchestra is given on page 12 of the play, immediately following the dedications see Figure 4.
The other three are more fanciful. The grand basson large bassoon and triple basson triple bassoon invoke a tendency towards the musically grandiose reminiscent of both Wagner and Berlioz. Quantin, : The instruments listed in Ubu roi are drawn from the wind including brass and percussion families. The list of ancient instruments also serves as a nod to the burgeoning interest in performance practice in Paris during this time.
While the score does utilize these motives, it does not rely on them overmuch, nor does the texture of the scoring resemble anything like that of Wagner or his French adherents. Similarly, the key signatures employed are rather simple, ranging from four flats to an occasional five sharps, while more frequently employing two or fewer accidentals in the key signatures. The chromaticism which the score employs is most often of the passing tone variety, though the frequency and variety of chromatic usage increases as the score continues.
Where modulations do occur they are often of a sectional nature rather than meticulously prepared. Among the more common goals of the chromatic modulations is the flatted submediant, rather old-fashioned by And most significant among its non-Wagnerian characteristics was the lack of any vocal music in this edition. Unlike those scores, however, the interaction of music and speech in Ubu roi was far more subtle and flexible, as the instrumental interludes and the melodrama were much more frequent and of a wider range of durations.
On the one hand, we find many parallels with other incidental scores of the avant-garde; on the other, there are parallels with less elevated genres such as melodramas and fairground music. Of all the incidental scores produced during this era in France, it is fitting that the most direct comparisons can be made between the music for Ubu roi and the music for Symbolist marionette dramas.
The scores by Vidal and Chausson, on the other hand, were more clearly incidental music but differed from Ubu roi in that they were often comprised of fifteen to twenty movements which were each longer than those for Ubu roi, and usually incorporated choruses and vocal soloists. Its influence is more striking than that of the contemporary incidental works on Ubu roi.
Similar music still accompanies the puppet shows in the public gardens in Paris today. Constable and Co. TH This relation by precedent holds true not only for the plots but also for the music of these plays, as the two scores bear some striking outward resemblances. Both scores are written for 5-act plays incorporating slapstick comedy and social satire. Both are comprised of numerous short movements during the drama; Robert Macaire possesses 64 movements besides its overture, while Ubu roi contains In each score, these range from 2 or 3 measures up to fifty-eight measures, though most are under twenty measures.
Repeat signs occur with some frequency, providing the conductor with a flexibility of movement length to suit the dramatic needs. And just as with Ubu roi, the musical materials of Robert Macaire are of a simplistic nature: the surviving orchestral parts show a simple melody-accompanyment texture as the rule, with basic partwriting that did not require virtuosi, and simple key signatures from three sharps to four flats. Cues from the spoken text are sprinkled throughout the parts, indicating where tremolo passages should begin to underline dialogue in the simplest form of musical melodrama.
Similarly, many of the shorter musical snippets in Ubu roi are carefully positioned within the spoken text and labeled to indicate their role as atmospheric sonority. While it is unlikely that Terrasse knew this particular score for Robert Macaire — which was written in and revived in and , nearly fifty years before Ubu roi — it stands nevertheless as an examplar of musical accompanyment to a boulevard melodrama which was among the most famous in nineteenth-century France, and the most relevant to Ubu roi.
Table 4. To be sure, his use of leitmotifs is shorter-breathed than a truly Wagnerian usage. But he does manage to utilize the motives in augmentation, diminution, complex rhythmic alterations, transformational processes, and in combinations which are consistently fresh and artful. In the spirit of eclectism, these usages of the motives are most often presented with a clarity and tunefulness which was a hallmark of the most self-conscious French styles of the era.
An example of a combination of two motives which incorporates a transformation of a motive is found in the postlude to Act I, scene ii see Figure 4. Figure 4. After a series of falling ninths, the pantomimic music which accompanies their death begins rather like a Bach invention. What started as a two-part imitation in the right-hand part is transformed in the last two systems of the score to sonically resemble the Dies Irae theme so frequently used to signify death in dramatic and programmatic music.
The harmonic ambiguity of this passage lies in stark contrast to the harmonic simplicity of the Ouverture, even if the textures of the two are similar. For those who might expect the score for Ubu roi to match the strident avant-garde nature of the text, the music can seem rather off-putting in its surface simplicity and in its lack of outwardly avantgarde moments. Its texture is almost exclusively melody-accompaniment, and it would seem very much at home in the world of operetta, to which Terrasse would later turn with a success not seen since Offenbach himself.
In this light, Terrasse supplied clues to the audience which might provide context in which they could form interpretations of this unusual work. This was especially useful in light of the polysemy of signifiers in the text of the play. The list is short — only two works — and they are both operas. Few works are likely to stand up to such comparisons; the additional problem for Le Martyre is that it was never an opera in the first place. Despite the telegrams and messages sent all over Paris to notify ticketholders of the cancellation, an angry crowd eventually forced their way into the dress rehearsal and joined the press in the audience, after arguing vehemently with the theater staff.
The difficulties surrounding Le Martyre did not end here. The most problematic aspect of the work was its massive text, whose 3, verses made it extend to four and a half hours in performance. It would seem that even those responsible for the work agreed with these criticisms, as it is reported that the second act was significantly reduced after the May 22 open dress rehearsal.
La Revue musicale June : Thus, in few critics were confused as to the genre of the work, and especially the nature of the music. Claude Debussy pour le drame de M. To the extent that it does refer to anything in the score, it would most likely allude to the imitation of Palestrinian counterpoint in the choral parts, especially in the fifth Mansion. In any event, the genre of the work would seem much more confusing to one whose vantage point was onstage while leading a portion of the choristers and extras, than to an audience member who might form a more comprehensive view of the work.
The first revision led to the concert suite of the work, containing orchestral excerpts from the first, third and fourth mansions as the acts of the play were called. The same year also saw Inghelbrecht conduct a concert version of the work, with nine soloists, choristers and orchestral players, and all five Table 5. Notably absent from this version were all the spoken roles, suggesting that this version amounted to a straight performance of the score without any spoken dialogue.
Perhaps the most obvious and relevant works to compare with Le Martyre are those which also drew their plots and themes from Christian history and legend.

The list of plays with proto-Christian themes and incorporating incidental music includes at least five works. These employ a different set of musical signifiers, including an instrumentation comprised exclusively of chorus and organ. In Table 5. Musical Signifiers: thematic use Nero, 64 A. Table 5. One might consider that Table 5. Canticum Geminorum Marc and Marcellien , vv. Chorus Virginum 9 Virgins , vv. Chorus Juvenum 9 Youths , vv. Erigoneium Melos, vv.
Chorus Syriacus , vv. Items in bold are not set to music, despite the marginal notes in the text of the play. La Cour des Lys No. La Chambre magique No. Le Concile des faux dieux No. Venge nos temples! Sombre et lent No. Le Paradis No. Similarly, he might have written only eight movements if he desired to focus his energy on perfecting them.
Instead, he wrote eighteen movements, which suggests that Debussy did find something in the play about which to feel passionately, and that his work on this score — though taxing — also was rewarding in some way besides the 19 Page and verse numbers refer to the text of the play published in June Movements in bold are not called for in the marginal notes in the text of the play. The mystical subject suited his very introverted aesthetic. He had, moreover, personal ideas which he described to me about The Passion which was mimed by Saint Sebastian in the mystery in question, ideas of profound originality.
And Debussy himself simply wept. A Contextualization of The Role of Dance in Le Martyre Besides subject and setting, another comparison between Le Martyre and its contemporaneous French incidental scores lies in the creation of spectacle through the presence of dance. If one were to count these as a single movement, Debussy composed fifteen movements. Yet similarly prominent uses of ballet and pantomime are found in seven other scores with settings in antiquity, both with and without proto-Christian subjects. The divertissement is comprised of three parts.
The Furies open the drama by wandering about the ancient palace of Pelops until the sun rises, adding a menacing element to the grandeur of the location. The drama closes when the Furies appear first to summon Orestes to his doom, then to fall upon him and tear him to pieces. Throughout, these figures remain mute, using the gravity of their presence and their motion to communicate their power and import within the drama. This movement serves to accompany both the gathering of the dancers and musicians to receive Iole and Hercules, and the religious procession which Hercules and Iole make towards the place of libations, where Hercules takes up the cup.
In Act II, yet another festival to celebrate the victorious return of a king generates a ballet No. Throughout the drama, the entries and exits of Parysatis and Aspasie are underlined with music, endowing these moments with pantomimic qualities. I do not agree. Musical Signifiers in Le Martyre Finally, the collection of incidental scores on similar subjects and with similar settings provides an opportunity to investigate the use of musical signifiers for these settings and subjects.
Published in Polish in , the novel quickly gained favor throughout Europe, as it was translated into 26 languages within five years of its initial publication. Like the novel, the production also encountered a striking success, as it ran for one hundred-fifteen performances in the — season and was revived the following autumn for another fifty-two performances.
Both are set in the Roman Empire; both involve conflicts between the proto-Christian church and antique pagan religions; both involve erotic elements; and both were associated with the Symbolists. Ouverture Second Tableau No. Le Combat des Gladiateurs No. Danses gaditaines Third Tableau No. Faunes et Bacchantes Sixth Tableau No. Fanfares funebres Tenth Tableau No. The opening measures of each work feature a confluence of several aspects designed to evoke local color. The first is tonal ambiguity. While the remainder of measure one suggests E major as a clear tonality, measure two returns strongly to C-sharp minor.
Similarly, in Figure 5. This prominent use of the Neapolitan is the second feature which unites the two scores. The Neapolitan harmony of measure four in Quo vadis? Third, the presence of a prominent falling perfect fifth in the opening melody of Quo vadis? There, the leap of a diminished fifth in measure seven is answered by the minor sixth in measure nine.
By encircling the perfect fifth from a semitone above and below, both of these rising intervals recall the pair of rising perfect fifths in the opening four measures, and serve to prepare the wider rising intervals of measures The use of perfect fifths persists in the prelude of Le Martyre, as seen in Figure 5. Alternately, it might be labeled as a III in C-sharp minor. An underlying sense of organic unity is provided by the process of transformation of the perfect fifth and by the flexible phrase lengths.
As a result of the freer invention of the themes in Quo vadis? The last element in common between the two scores is a sliding chromaticism, which recurs in a number of disparate contexts. A rising chromatic scalar passage is first encountered in Quo vadis? A chromatic scalar passage recurs first in the third movement, during a battle of gladiators, where the passage evokes the octatonic scale as a means to its exoticism Figure 5. A similar usage occurs in measures of that same movement. Figure 5. The last occurrence of such chromatic material within a new theme in Quo vadis?
There, it occurs as the main thematic material of the contrasting middle section in a ternary form, as in Figure 5. Leaps are strategically placed in the theme Figure 5. Similar uses of chromatic fragments recur throughout the score of Le Martyre as well. The first is in measure 35 of the prelude, where a descending chromatic fragment A-flat-F is repeated and extended to F-flat in the following measure See Figure 5.
A similar descending chromatic passage is found in the inner voice of the texture near the opening of that scene See Figure 5. Figures 5. As the dynamic drops to piano, one sees a brief chromatic descent in the inner voice D-flat—C—Cflat combined with the rising fifth element E-flat—B-flat. The use of these musical signifiers is not limited to these two scores, but is found also in the other works listed in Tables 5.
Each of these three semiotically charged elements are common features in music from the late nineteenth-century onwards. Yet based on comparative analysis, this constellation of topoi seems unique to these scores for antique and protoChristian themed dramas. That this constellation of topoi served to evoke the local color of ancient settings is borne out all the more strongly since these topoi were not found only in incidental music. I would suggest that further comparison of incidental and operatic scores on similar subjects and with similar settings might be invaluable in understanding better the semiotic content of music for the French stage in the nineteenth century.
Musical Signifiers: thematic th Alexandria, 4 century use of P5 interval, thematic A. Of course, these commonalities serve to validate the comparisons between these scores, and to suggest the richness of French incidental music of this era. To start with, it strikes one with its clarity, its serenity and its force. One finds there the whole-tone scale of his preceding works. One also finds in it sometimes a breadth of sentiment, other times a simplicity of means worthy of note and of praise.
Claude Debussy. The four preludes which Debussy composed, the choruses, the solos, count among his most accomplished pages. A very select and numerous audience. Very beautiful interpretation. Public de choix. Within this relative vacuum of stages for operatic production, the many stages of Paris which produced spoken dramas served as surrogates for composers to hone their craft. Yet the genre was not merely used as an entrance to the career.
Many composers continued to produce incidental music throughout their careers. That these composers were all well-established when they wrote these scores suggests that the blurring of generic boundaries was not undertaken to prove their ability to write in an operatic style, as a young composer might attempt.
The importance of further studies of this genre is threefold. First, study of incidental music illustrates the wide variety of institutions, composers and directors who were involved with music for staged entertainment in a manner which the study of opera alone does not. Third, comparative studies of opera and incidental music with similar settings and plots offers the possibility of identifying a wider degree of musical signifiers than would the study of opera alone. Further study of incidental music in France at the turn of the twentieth century offers many possibilities for completing our understanding of musical and theatrical productions during this vibrant and dynamic era.

These Parisian performances alone total to by Alfred Jarry. Reprinted in Jarry:Tout Ubu. Paris: Gallimard, The Swedenborgian Doctor Mises has quite rightly compared rudimentary works with the most perfect achievements, and embryonic forms with the most evolved creatures, pointing out that the former categories lack any element of accident, protuberance or special characteristics, leaving them a practically spherical form like the ovule or Mister Ubu; and, equally, that the latter possess so many personal attributes that they too take on a spherical form, by virtue of the axiom that the smoothest body is the one presenting the greatest number of different facets.
A few actors have agreed to lose their own personalities during two consecutive evenings by performing with masks over their faces so that they can mirror the mind and soul of the man-sized marionettes that you are about to see. As the play has been put on in some haste and in a spirit of friendly improvisation, Ubu has not had time to obtain his own real mask, which would have been very awkward to wear in any case, and his confederates, too, will be decked out in only approximate disguise. It was very important that, if the actors were to be as much like marionettes as possible, we should have fairground music scored for brass and gongs and megaphones — which we simply did not have time to get together.
We are going to make do with three complete acts, followed by two acts incorporating some cuts. I have mde all the cuts the actors wanted even sacrificing several passages essential to the understanding of the play , and for their benefit I have kept in scenes which I would have been only too happy to eliminate. For, however much we may have wanted to be marionettes, we have not quite hung each character from a string, which may not necessarilty have been an absurd idea but would certainly have been rather awkward for us, and in any case we were not quite sure exactly how many people were going to be available for our crowd scenes, whereas with real marionettes a handful of pulleys and strings serves to control a whole army.
So in order to fill our stage you will see leading characters such as Ubu and the Czar talking to each other while prancing around on their cardboard horses which, incidentally, we have been up all night painting. At least the first three acts and the closing scenes will be played in full, just as they were written. And we also have the ideal setting, for just as a play can be set in Eternity by, say, letting people fire revolvers in the year one thousand or thereabouts, so you will see doors opening onto snow-covered plains under blue skies, mantelpieces with clocks on them swinging open to turn into doorways, and palm trees flourishing at the foot of beds so that little elephants perching on bookshelves can graze on them.

Under his command, ballet and opera rightly became professional arts unto themselves. Afterwards he collapsed again with another, larger haemorrhage before being taken home, where he died a few hours later, without receiving the last rites because two priests refused to visit him while a third arrived too late.
The superstition that green brings bad luck to actors is said to originate from the colour of the clothing he was wearing at the time of his death. Under French law at the time, actors were not allowed to be buried in the sacred ground of a cemetery. Other playwrights and companies began to emulate his dramatic style in England and in France. Romanticists admired his plays for the unconventional individualism they portrayed. Many critics now are shifting their attention from the philosophical, religious and moral implications in his comedies to the more objective study of his comic technique.
Frame , and many others. Funny as a baby's open grave. Fortunately, he was dead wrong. All these things are occasionally true, but they are trifles in comparison to the wealth of character he portrayed, to his brilliancy of wit, and to the resourcefulness of his technique. He was wary of sensibility or pathos; but in place of pathos he had "melancholy — a puissant and searching melancholy, which strangely sustains his inexhaustible mirth and his triumphant gaiety".
