Theater vocabulary part I: The compound nouns
My recent workshop “German for Opera Singers” in Berlin brought together sopranos and baritones to discuss theater vocabulary. Stage language in German opera houses is, of course, German, and therefore compound nouns are your companions – no escape.
The workshop’s participants tried to connect the following compounds to create words that describe things or activities on stage. Try it, too, but do not scroll down … yet.
Here are the answers – with another exercize: Choose the verbs below that fit the nouns.
das Lampenfieber _______________ das Bühnenbild ________________
die Hosenrolle _______________ die Generalprobe ________________
die Zweitbesetzung _______________ das Stimmband ________________
der Scheinwerfer _______________
aufführen, haben, singen, aufbauen, blenden, warten, entzünden
