What is Music Theater

What is Music Theater in essence? Can it be called a genre on its own? Or is it merely a label for everything that does not fit under another label? And if it exists, what is then the difference between Music Theater – the modern performance art form and subgenre of music theater – and other hybrid art forms that include musical and theatrical elements grouped under the hypernym ‘music theater’?

I wrote this thesis during my Master studies in Modern Music Theater at the Royal Conservatory The Hague. It has been published in the Research Catalogue, the international database for artistic research.
