This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the opera fans at the Colón Opera House. It explores the sociological significance of opera and the complex forms of emotional attachment to the opera. This chapter also suggests that the work of art can serve as a locus for personal and emotional investment or as a medium for moral self-formation instead of merely being a tool for the maximization of capital.
