Daration: 95 min


Notes: Senza misura bars: The rhythms for the singers should resemble natural speech patterns. Four different note-lengths are used (from short to long) but these are only a guide. In some sections, such as scenes I and VII, the singers have to cue their entries from each other. This is indicated by arrows. As the voices pass from one to another there should be great flexibility and fluidity. When the music moves faster, voices should overlap and collide. In scene 7 there are moments when two singers are cued simultaneously. In this situation, do not attempt to be in time with each other. Time signatures: In scene I there are time signatures of 1/3 and 2/3. These indicate the division of the beat into one or two triplet minims in the bar.
