Another well known form of classical music is the opera. Other than the orchestra, this type of classical music is enjoyed by many in various countries. The opera began in Italy and then spread to the rest of the world. The first opera was performed in 1600s in the town of Florence. This is the most dramatic form of classical musical because it consists of a theater, opera singer and musicians.
Like the other forms of classical music, the opera has its own sub-types. There is the small operetta, the comical opera known as the opera-comique and the singspiel, to name a few. One of the most notable composers of the opera is Mozart. He completely revolutionized most of the classical forms of music. His most notable operas are “The Magic Flute and “The Marriage of Figaro”.
