Notes on the shaping of the Slovak National Theatre Opera in the interwar period
Languages of publication
This article deals with the shaping of the opera company of the Slovak National Theatre in the interwar period. Its main focus is on the characteristics of Karel Nedbal’s era (1928–1938), but neither does it ignore the contribution of his predecessor Oskar Nedbal, who, besides other things, improved the quality of the opera orchestra in Bratislava and helped the Slovak National Theatre establish relations with similar institutions abroad. The ten years of Karel Nedbal’s work, which theatre scholars consider one of the most significant eras in the theatre’s nearly one hundred years’ history, are characterised in terms of dramaturgy, staging and music and vocal production. The article confronts facts that have been published several times elsewhere with the opinions and views that Karel Nedbal expressed especially in his memoirs Půl století s českou operou (Half a Century with Czech Opera).
