Abstract and Keywords

This article looks at the nationalization of opera, which was the result of an increase in cultural transfers. It demonstrates that nationalism shaped many of the features of opera history, as well as its artistic and institutional levels. It notes that the share of indigenous work in the collection of opera theaters in continental Europe rose, and that the process of nationalization resulted from the context of the “age of nationalism” and the efforts of music composers and critics.

Keywords: nationalization, opera, cultural transfers, nationalism, opera history, indigenous work, age of nationalism
