Encyclopedia > The opera corpus

This is a list of more than 1,250 works by more than 360 individual opera composers.


Many of the works listed below are still being performed today - but not all. The principal works of the major composers are given as well as those of historical importance in the development of the art form.


The list is broad and inclusive, with light music (operettas, zarzuela etc.) as well as other more formal styles of opera. It covers the full historical period from the birth of opera in the late 16th century to the present day. (Some statistics are given at the foot of the page.)


Thousands of operas have been written and performed during the past four hundred years, both in Europe and in the New World and even in Asia. This list is intended to be a selective one of those special works that merit inclusion in Wikipedia.
