Musical Theatre: Defying Gravity from Wicked and A Little Priest from Sweeny Todd
Author: Debbie Adamson
Musical Theatre: Unfamiliar listening (Aural Awareness)
This resource was made to support the new Eduqas GCE A level specification, first exam June 2018 (Area of Study C: Question 2). However can be used to support the unfamiliar listening of other exam boards as well. The first listening question (part 1) is Defying Gravity from Wicked by Schoenberg and the second part involves comparing this extract with A little Priest from Sweeny Todd by Sondheim.
The resource consists of three parts: two recordings, student question paper and a marking scheme. It is also a useful unfamiliar listening resource for other specifications with a Musical Theatre option (i.e. AQA).
