Abstract

The materials presented in the article are devoted to the development and establishment of the chamber opera as a specific genre of the national musical theatre in the 1960s-1970s. It is mentioned that "minor" forms were equally characteristic of both drama and musical theatres. The article explains the reasons why the authors concentrated on the individual personality and inner world. As a result, they turned to the treasury of world literature in general and to the works by F. M. Dostoyevsky in particular. The above-mentioned tendencies are reflected in the opera by Yu. M. Butsko, "White Nights", which has become the material of the research. It is the evidence of the chamber opera genre peculiarities; the specific intonational, compositional and dramatic features of the work are considered. It is concluded that an important role in the opera is played by the Night theme, which opens up the opera and becomes the unique "intonational stock" for the further development of the work.
