мюзикълНай-добрите мюзикъли

Позволявам си да използвам чуждестранни определения за мюзикъл.

Мюзикъл – театрална постановка, която съдържа музика, диалози и танц. Типичният стил е популярната музика. Видове мюзикъл:

  • Book – традиционална музика със силна история, която движи музиката и характерите
  • Revue – колекция от песни, генерално с общ елемент
  • Concept – концептът или съобщението е по-силно от историята
  • Jukebox – използваната музика е само от една група или артист
  • Rock или Pop – обикновено без или с много малко диалог. Тази форма се нарича рок/поп опера

Нека не забравяме мюзикъли като “Исус Христос суперзвезда”, “Коса”, “Котки”, “Бурлеска”
