Opera is a sophisticated form of musical theater that usually includes elaborate costumes and scenery. Singers and musicians perform dramatic work combining text (called libretto) and musical score, most often in a theatrical setting. Elements of spoken theater are often utilized, and sometimes dance is also part of opera shows as well.
Traditional opera was born in Italy at the end of the 16th Century and it still remains a large part of the arts and culture scene there today. Modern audiences love new shows as well as other classic productions.
Some popular contemporary works include The Barber of Seville, La Boheme, and Carmen, which deals with the life and death of a gypsy. If you enjoy cultural events, consider a trip to the opera house. Whatever you seek, find all your ticketing needs at TicketNetwork!
