Fatso

November 22, 2008

SSA. Jonatha Brooke/The Story. Sopranos and mezzos lead while altos accompany and make comments. Hilarious critique of dieting. The voices play off each other, one gamely convinced that being thin is the best thing and the other voicing the anguish of constant hunger. Alto part could easily be string bass. Note: This piece only works if the singers are big hams.
