Abstract [en]

This thesis describes the process that Gísli Jóhann Grétarsson, composer, and Margrét Brynjarsdóttir, librettist/singer, faced while writing their mini opera Dimmalimm in 2009.The thesis focuses on the changes and alternations that where made in the music and libretto while writing the opera.It also discusses why one path was taken rather than another.The following parts of the process are discussed: The original story used to write the opera (The Story of Dimmalimm by Guðmundur Thorsteinsson) The limitations of the pre organized structure of the opera The dramatization and interpretation of the libretto, the music and stage directions in the libretto. The collaboration between the composer and the librettist of Dimmalimm in comparison to similar collaborations throughout history.
