The study deals with time in opera as one of the most important categories of theatre and also of drama. It stems from the comparison of classical definitions of aesthetics and the conception of temporality in theatre written by Patrice Pavis. He is trying to answer the question, which peculiarities of music contribute to the temporality of opera work. Through practical models of several eminent Slovak theatrical opera stagings he is exploring how the time dimension of a work of art manifests itself in modern theatre.
