How is opera conceived and performed when moving from novel to illustration, from film to musical theatre, from ballet to fan fiction? But also from the great lyrical repertoire to rock or heavy metal, from fairy tales to horror, from adults to teenagers, from men to women, from one century to the next? Or from France to the United States and China, and from Great Britain to Italy and South America? This essay questions the future of entertainment in the West, from the rise of the romantic spectacular to the triumph of the globalized cultural industry. It shows that while opera as a genre and practice seems to be gradually fading away, its spirit lives on in other forms and by other means: opera and its substitutes take up aspirations that man cannot do without and to which they alone hold the key.
