"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] Such works were performed in theaters called opera houses.[2] Attending operas was regarded as a cultured activity.[3] 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,[4] Baron Rush Clovis, and Padmé Amidala.[5] 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-goes included Vice Admiral Dodd Rancit of the Naval Intelligence Agency, and Kren Blista-Vanee of the Imperial Ruling Council.[2] Gallius Rax was a fan of opera and tried to cultivate a taste for it in Rae Sloane.[6]
