Abstract

Music served a variety of purposes at the Estates Theatre in Ljubljana. As well as being the main component of opera and theatre productions, it also served as entertainment for the audience during intermissions and enriched evening events. The present study focuses on the importance of the interaction between instrumental music and theatrical and operatic performances from 1802 to 1837.
