The Opera Quarterly
I see destiny approaching, inexorably, and I note that it has designated you to bring to light mysticism and the like, and that it would be just as futile as it is hard-hearted to keep you from it. Still, I think we ought to venture to slow it down. I would like to request that you continue to research in secrecy for two full years and don't come out until ; then, certainly, in the Jahrbuch, openly and aboveboard.

Amerikamüde/Europamüde: The Very Idea of American Opera | The Opera Quarterly | Oxford Academic
Now, I would like to know when you are coming to Vienna, since you have indicated you would come in December. What is impossible in Europe is possible in America: what is impossible in America is not possible at all! My subject is the concept of American opera. I situate a particular discourse about this concept within a more general one about actuality and possibility, weariness and hope, drawn from predominantly German-American philosophies of history and art.
Most of this essay surveys the competing narratives regarding the concept of American opera around the time of the Second World War. Part 1 presents a philosophical narrative, which, though focused on the work of Theodor W. Adorno, is set against the background of writings of the early nineteenth century.
