“One of the principal composers of madrigal comedies, choral pieces that suggest plots and action to be imagined by the performers and listeners (EB).”
I wonder if that idea could be extended to other art forms, where the plots are only suggested and are largely in the imaginations of both performers and readers/viewers/listeners. What might such a work of art look like?
“Formerly, madrigal comedy was considered to be one of the important precursors to opera, but most music scholars now see it as a separate development, part of a general interest in Italy at the time in creating musico-dramatic forms (Wikipedia, “Banchieri”).
Since this art form combines two previously existing forms (music and drama), I wonder what other art forms could be combined?
