The first draft of Follies was a murder mystery entitled The Girls Upstairs.
YOUR MUSIC DIRECTOR WANTS THE “BIG PICTURE” — NOW THEY CAN HAVE IT!
The Full Score includes every note of the entire orchestration (including all markings and cues found in the vocal score) on one page. It’s perfect for conducting the show, orchestra rehearsals and score study.
Available for most operas and classical compositions, Full Reference Scores for musical theatre works are not as commonplace, usually replaced in the pit by either a Piano-Conductor score or a Piano-Vocal Score. With the advent of computer music engraving, Full Reference Scores are now being generated as a natural part of the orchestrating process. MTI is pleased to offer, as an optional additional rental, Full Reference Scores for several of our shows, and we look forward to adding more in the future.
