Scope Note: Here are entered works on the broad area of music in the theater, including opera, musical comedy, pantomime, revues, etc., and works about more than one such type. Works on musical productions, often small in scale and primarily of the 20th century, that combine elements of music, drama, and sometimes dance in unconventional ways that result in works distinct from traditional forms are entered under Music theater. Works on music for theatrical productions consisting of musical numbers integrated into a dramatic framework are entered under Musicals. Works on music for theatrical productions from around the end of the 18th century that feature a series of songs, dances, and other entertainments without any unifying dramatic element are entered under Revues.
