Title: Ľubica Čekovská: Impresario Dotcom – vplyv pandémie na genézu opery
Author: Viktória Oravec Ballánová

Abstract: Ľubica Čekovská: Impresario Dotcom – the Influence of Pandemic on the Opera Genesis
The second full-length opera by Ľubica Čekovská originated in an extremely exacting social situation, when the whole world was paralyzed by the ravaging pandemic. The complicated period had left its marks also on the circumstances and final appearance of the opera Impresario Dotcom, which instead of the originally announced co-production was eventually premiered only at the expense of the Bregenz Festival. The study focuses on the influence of the pandemic on the process of the study, date and place of the first performance of the opera. Subsequently we examine the musical structure of the work, which – due to imposed anti-pandemic measures – had to be cut and accommodated to the current situation. As modern opera creation is extremely rarely presented in the Slovak National Theatre, it is an important fact that the opera Impresario Dotcom, the composer’s second opera work, was again staged on this first Slovak opera scene.
