Abstract: This paper sets out to examine the importance and virtues of non-musical elements in operatic performance. By identifying expressive gestures in the artistic interpretation of two famous pieces, this study also explores the prevalence of the type of information (auditory or visual) that can determine the evaluation not only of an artistic interpretation but also of an entire musical performance.
Keywords: operatic performance, non-musical elements, expressive gestures, performance art, musical performance.
