"The instruments and song, the drama and the melodrama, the pathos and the tragedy. It's a lie. A fiction. And yet what happens on the stage speaks a kind of truth just the same."
Gallius Rax, to Rae Sloane[src]

An opera was a dramatic work set to music and including songs. The Bith culture notably produced operas,[1] and some Bith operas from the Middle Era of the Old Republic were highly regarded during the Age of the Empire.[2] Such works were performed in theaters called opera houses.[3] Attending operas was regarded as a cultured activity.[4]

During the last decades of the Galactic Republic, many politicians and other wealthy citizens of Coruscant often took in operatic performances at the Galaxies Opera House. Opera-goers of that time included Palpatine, Supreme Chancellor of the Republic and secretly a Dark Lord of the Sith,[5] Baron Rush Clovis, and Padmé Amidala.[6] After Palpatine revealed his true colors and reorganized the Republic into a dictatorial Galactic Empire, operas remained a common form of entertainment among the new government's elite. Imperial opera-goers included Vice Admiral Dodd Rancit of the Naval Intelligence Agency, and Kren Blista-Vanee of the Imperial Ruling Council.[3] Gallius Rax was a fan of opera and tried to cultivate a taste for it in Rae Sloane.[7] After her first term as queen of Naboo ended, Réillata went on to be a moderately successful opera singer before she was elected into office again in 28 BBY.[8]
