This chapter suggests that change in operatic repertory or operatic revisions is nothing new. It explains that opera groups have maintained their presence over a century of music making not by means of some numinous artistic force radiating from them but by means of many and varied repertoires. In addition, they are sustained through the agency of performers, through the energies and human vulnerability of singers and conductors.

Keywords: operatic repertory; operatic revisions; performers; conductors; music making
