KRÁTKY EXURZ DO PROBLEMATIKY IMAGINATÍVNOSTI SLOVENSKÉHO OPERNÉHO DIVADLA
Brief excursus to the issue of imaginativeness of the Slovak opera theatre
Languages of publication
On the example of specific productions, the paper explores the issues of imaginativeness of the Slovak opera theatre. The official descriptive realism favoured in the early 1950s denied both, the author and the audience, space for imagination. Since the late fifties, our opera theatre has discovered increasingly advancing cinematic and lighting technology as an effective means to achieve the visual and emotional impact. The study monitors the use of these means, from the pioneering work of Miloš Wasserbauer in the turn of the fifties and sixties up to the contemporary opera productions.
