Analysis of Stravinsky’s choice to create the opera based on Sophocles’ ancient text. Please look at Stravinsky’s use of Baroque (opera) and a Neoclassicism (return to the classical style of music, as well as neoclassicism in literature- the return to the classical aka Greek and Latin texts, which also connects to the Renaissance separation of only seeking Christian themes and turning to a more humanistic approach). Further, in the musical analysis of the piece, please focus on the text painting (e.g. Stravinsky’s use of concertato and musical accompaniment of certain textual phrases from the opera). Please connects this to argue that Stravinsky is using the orchestra in a ‘simple’ yet rich and effective way to create and aid the characterization and the passion of the Greek tragedy heros and their fates.
