Known as tragedie-lyrique, French opera, in contradiction to Italian opera, placed the tragedy first in importance and then set the drama to music (Grout and Williams). Thus, priority was placed upon the words and the music came second in significance. The arias were less extravagant and less performer based. Dance pervaded the opera in adherence to the unique French tradition of ballet de cour, court ballet. In order to follow the general contours of the French language, the French recitative had many more meter changes than the Italian recitative.
Theatrical productions that led to the rise of the musical are as follow: • BALLAD OPERA & OPERETTA Ballad operas and operettas both share qualities found in traditional opera. Just like the opera, these genres are both sung in an operatic style. The ballad opera originated in England around the eighteenth century, and developed to become a type of comic opera.

The Beggar 's Opera is an example of a ballad opera.

The oratorio is an extended musical drama with a text based on religious subject matter intended for performance without scenery, costume or action. Oratorio originally meant prayer hall.
But Susanna, the Countess, and the other ladies of Figaro still live in a man’s world. The title of this opera is called The Marriage of Figaro for goodness sake, even though Figaro is definitely not the main character. Perhaps, that’s why they always needed to be a step or two ahead. Furthermore, all the women are very strong characters and have learned from life. Because of their experiences, they know what they want and also how to get it.
One of the elements of the new French opera that shows the influence of King Louis XIV on Lully’s Armide was the overture at the beginning. As this overture was in welcome of the king, its sound was appropriately majestic in keeping with King Louis’s use of the arts as propaganda. Not only did the music praise the king, but also the text. Quinault used the opera as an opportunity to glorify France and admire its king. “His texts were overtly and covertly propagandistic” and they celebrated the king in literal terms or in allegory (Burkholder, et al.

Prince Ramiro dressed up as a beggar and a servant to visit the Don Magnifico’s family so as to observe those girls who want to be his wife, but Clorinda and Tisbe treated him impolitely and asked him to go away.
Scene 4. 523-532; 546). The diction used between the two characters come off, somewhat, homoerotic and suggests some kind of romantic relationship between both Iago and Othello. No matter how the audience chooses to interpret this notion, Iago is still the main focus in this play. We spend more time and follow his storyline more than we do Othello; from his manipulation of Roderigo, the way he treats Emilia, to his “friendship” with Othello.
