Le décor d'opéra, ses rapports avec l'architecture et la peinture by Gérard Fontaine( Book )

6 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in French and Undetermined and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

THE RESEARCH FOCUSES ON TWO THEMES : - OPERA POSSESSES DISTINCTIVE ESTHETIC ASPECTS WHICH ARE SPECIFICALLY ECHOED IN ITS STAGE SCENERY. AN OPERA'S SETTING OBEYS NO OTHER RULE THAN THOSE OF THE OPERA ITSELF ; IT SERVES THE ASPIRATIONS OF A WAKING DREAM, THUS PRODUCING AN ORIGINAL ESTHETIC FORM. - THE THEORETICAL AND HISTORICAL RELATIONSHIPS OF OPERATIC STAGE SETTING WITH THE SEVERAL VISUAL ARTS CONFIRM THAT SCENERY EXISTS INDEPENDENTLY FROM THEM. OPERATIC STAGE SETTING IS A VISUAL ARTISTIC ENTITY WHICH UNFOLDS IN SPACE ACCORDING THE BEAT OF A MUSICAL SCORE : IT IS A "CHRONOTOPOS" (M. BAKTINE). THIS WORK DEALS ONLY WITH OPERATIC STAGE SETTING, TO THE EXCLUSION OF BOTH COSTUME AND BALLET SCENERY. BUT IT HAS NO OTHER LIMITS THAN THOSE OF OPERA'S HISTORY
