Read more: Gergely Kesselyák conductor, festivaldirektorWithout the emergence of contemporary popular opera capable of addressing huge audiences opera performances will become mere museums and the opera genre, falling short of broad social support, will diminish into a narrow sub-sector of the performing arts. Directorial opera-staging has been delaying the slow decline of the genre, but it is not enough any more. Time has come that composers renew and save the opera! Composers of all countries! Create the radically new opera genre that combines the popularity of musicals with the highest aesthetic aspirations of classical music thus reviving the spirit of Mozart, Verdi and Puccini.
