An opera house is a sumptuous theatre for the performance of highly stylized musical
plays. The self-important and the genuinely important often attend to be seen rather
than for amusement, but the “lower orders” are often genuinely entertained and
distracted from the difficulties of life. No expense is spared on making an opera house
a grand venue. They rival many great palaces with the luxury of their fixtures and
fittings, as the public areas for the audience are at least as important as what is
happening on stage. Having a prestigious opera house will improve town wealth as it
draws crowds from far and wide.
18th Century opera was done in the Italian “serious” style, a musical form that
influenced many non-Italian composers including Mozart. The plots were intentionally
simple, based on Classical themes, usually tragic and often had a highly conservative
bent – as befitted the tastes of the patrons paying for the music. Many are still
performed today. One fashion that mercifully ended before the Napoleonic period was
the use of castrati: young men gelded so that their voices did not break and remained
in the soprano range.
