The article attempts to characterize connections between literature and music in the
dramatic works of Ivan Vyrypaev. On the basis of the writer’s plays (Oxygen, Illusions, Genesis
No. 2, Delhi Dance), it indicates manifestations of musicality occurring on three levels: phonic,
thematic, and compositional. Vyrypaev’s works — emotional, rich in language and innovative
composition — are characterized by remarkable euphony, achieved mainly by syntactic and lexical
parallelisms, and in the case of Oxygen also by the external dramatic structure.
