Comic characters had been a part of opera until the early 18th century, when opera buffa started becoming a separate genre. Opera buffa had the same development to opera seria. Opera buffa was partially intended as a genre that ordinary people could relate to more easily. Opera seria was a form of entertainment that was both made for and portrayed kings and nobility, but opera buffa was made for and portrayed common people with common problems.
