|Title:||How to Build a Billy||Contributor(s):||Smith, Paul (creator)||Publication Date:||2018-07-19||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/31658||Abstract:||This opera responds to the question of how chamber opera can involve aspects of the cabaret aesthetic. The opera is a dark satire of many character and narrative opera tropes and mediates them through the cabaret aesthetic mixed with humour, slight-of-hand, physical comedy and burlesque. The opera has been performed in bars, cabaret venues and small theatres which contribute to its cabaret aesthetic. The show challenges traditional female relationships in opera and centres on the body of a dead man instead of a dead woman as so many canonic operas do.||Publication Type:||Original Creative Works - Other||Publisher:||Australian Music Centre||Place of Publication:||Sydney, Australia||Fields of Research (FoR) 2008:||190406 Music Composition||Fields of Research (FoR) 2020:||360302 Music composition and improvisation||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO) 2008:||950101 Music||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO) 2020:||130102 Music||Format:||23 pages, 23 minutes||HERDC Category Description:||Z5 Original creative works - Other||Publisher/associated links:||https://www.australianmusiccentre.com.au/workversion/smith-paul-how-to-build-a-billy/33413
