from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Interlude , sometimes also Intermezzo ( Italian for interlude , literally pause ; also Intermedio ), in stage jargon stop- gap , are called insertions or transitions in artistic media. There are intermezzi on the one hand as independent forms, right up to the genre that contrasts with the main work . On the other hand, they only have subordinate compositional and dramaturgical elements. The interludes in music and drama , but also stage work , poetry and literature, Film and storytelling have influenced each other in form and function in various ways in art history.

Independent forms

This can also be found in the entremeses , short Spanish pieces that served as a break filler between meals (from the 13th century).
