dc.description.abstract This thesis, comprised of a performance and extensive program notes, explores the influence of opera and operetta in the formation and development of American musical theatre from the turn of the twentieth century to today. The program notes, included here, are representative of the research conducted to provide a background to the performance portion of the thesis. The notes are organized chronologically by composers and shows which represent the influence of the operatic musical style in musical theatre.The performance parallels the subject matter in that it begins formally as a classical voice recital and takes on the form of an informal cabaret act. Spoken introductions are used to give the songs a historical context and relate them personally to the singer. The specific composers and songs for the program were chosen as a result of the research conducted.
