Title: Opera a mladý divák. Perspektíva vzťahu
Author: Pavol Smolík

Abstract: The contribution Opera and Young Spectator. The Perspective of a Relationship deals with the questions of the current position of opera in the society especially in the relation to the young generation. How to ensure the continuity of the operatic art to the future? What is necessary to do to encourage the society to listen to opera in the future? How could young spectators be captivated by opera? The author points to the fact that in their endeavour to address the youth the opera creators and managers often reach for simplified stage interpretation of the operatic work. However, to prefer the legibility to quality is not the right approach. The young spectator should be addressed by a language, which is peculiar for the stage director and at the same time generally understandable, ensuring also individual and cultural moulding of the young. When we are speaking about the opera for the youth, the stage director’s work should be based on four dominant criteria: 1. generally accepted values; 2. inspiring individuals; 3. communication in the society; 4. the endeavour to produce attractive musical, dynamic, and aesthetically impressive visual. This approach is documented by the example of the stage production of the opera Martin and Sun written by the Slovak composer Tibor Frešo, staged in the Slovak National Theatre in 2006 by the author of the contribution.
