Chapter Summary

The historic insularity of the Colón, in comparison to other cultural institutions, can be better understood if one look to how little the opera house changed during the years of the military process that governed the country from 1976 to 1983. This chapter tackles the questions are: How do fans cope with this breach? What forces do they identify as destabilizing the insularity of the Colón? What strategies do they use to try to link the world of the past with the current condition of opera productions? The chapter also tackles those questions and undertakes a theoretical interrogation of the link between a particular social world and the dispositions of its inhabitants through concepts like habitus and embodiment. It shows how the fans identify corruption, dirt, the hyper-politicization of art and the consequent lack of vocation as forces invading the house and dissolving their long term held attachment.

Keywords: aesthetic attachment; breach; corruption; cultural status; dirt
