The entries go from traditional to experimental, low budget productions to large-scale ones, cafe performance to gallery installation, and of course, the use of conventional venues too. Amongst the works are operas, musicals and music performances (concert), whilst the definition of music theatre is becoming more hybrid and/or multi-faceted.  As a genre, music theatre is evolving and defining itself.
