Opera Paradox-3.
Opera in the Post-Culture Period:
Transformation of the Cultural Form or the Death of the Genre?

Abstract. The authors continue their dialogue on the history of opera as a cultural form, discussing its transformations in different contexts, on changes in ratio between musical, verbal and visual elements depending on cultural dominants of the certain ages. The article is also devoted to preservation of cultural form in terms of full destruction of its traditional characteristics and shifting of accents to stage’s visual elements. The key question, the authors put in this part of the dialogue, is whether in contemporary conditions opera can survive as a genre or is sure to “die”.

Key words. Cultural form, opera, genre, art, history, creativity, Romanticism, context, transformation.
