Opera is a form of art which beautifully blends the elements of theatre, drama and music to create a cathartic, visually appealing and sensually uplifting performance. In the olden days, going to the theatre was the epitome of social life. A lot of fanfare was associated with it. The elite usually sponsored or commissioned a group to put together a show. The nobles and courtiers along with the cream of society attended the opera. It was considered a zenith of culture and good breeding since it was written and performed in Italian
With changing times the etiquettes have evolved. Nowadays, barring a few places, most opera houses have relaxed their dress codes. They are more interested in getting more people involved with and appreciative towards the opera as an art form
