So why should it be like that for an opera, which is much more difficult because you have the music. So you don't have to invent as much as in a real play, because in a real play you have only the text [and] you have to create your own music. So it takes a long time. We have already the music-which tells something else, sometimes, [than does] the text, but still you have to put that all together.

Many civilizations are known only for their art.
