The author of passage B defines a "singer's opera" as an opera

How is subordinate right? It says relative parity (equality) between music and other factors??

The passage says "two fundamental types may be distinguished: that in which the music is primary, and that in which there is ..parity. The former, sometimes called "the singer's opera".." Since the music is primary in the "singer's opera," we can conclude that nonmusical elements are subordinate as opposed to the latter opera type where there is parity.
