Translation of abstract (English)

A synthesis of the arts is in artistic circles something like a sea serpent. It is constantly talked about, but it is not be seen at all – wrote in 1964 Michel Ragon, emphasizing that we meet here with desires rather than with actual results. This artistic obsession, preoccupying creators with different intensity and in different variants at least since the time of Wagner, found its unexpected realization in Kantor’s Theatre of Death. Unexpected because contrary to the statements reiterated by the artist himself on the other hand, necessary since – as I prove in the present paper – ensuing from the dynamics of the inner development of creative activity of the author of "The Dead Class".
