Paradox of Opera-1: Cultural Meanings, Aesthetic Values and Historic Destiny

Abstract: The paper is presented in the form of a dialogue, the authors examine the problems of transformation of such a complex cultural form as opera in different historical and cultural epochs and its specific features in (post)cultural situation of our time. The authors suggest their own points of view (those of musicologist and of cultural researcher) on the correlation of different elements in the synthetic genre of art, find out universal and transient elements in reification of this genre in theatre practice, discuss aesthetic value of opera in the context of domination of mass culture.

Key words. Cultural form, opera, genre, culture, music theatre, system approach, aesthetic value
