Usually consisting of 3-4 acts, an opera is predominantly composed of singing (solo as well as chorus voices), music played by an orchestra, supporting costumes, stage design, lighting effects and dramatic acts etc.  

The Opera emerged as a form of Western Classical Music way back in the 16th century in Italy and slowly spread to other parts of the world.
