    Interesting discussion but I'd ask who cares? I imagine if Sondheim wanted to write something with a first act that seemed like an opera, and whose next act the orchestra left the pit, and the actors did nothing but texas two steps, he'd do it. He wouldn't think, gee the stuff I have in my head doesn't accord with existing definitions therefore I'd better stop. It's the doing, not the defining that has meaning.

    As for a line in this thread about which is higher, operas or musicals...I'd ask who is more valuable, or higher, a plumber or Albert Einstein? Depends on the context. I wouldn't want Einstein trying to unplug my toilet.
