Opéra comique (plural, opéras comiques) is a French genre of opera that contains spoken dialogue. It emerged out of the popular vaudevilles of the Fair Theatres of St. Germain and St. Laurent (and to a lesser extent the Comédie-Italienne). The name first appeared in reference to Télémaque by A.R. Lesage (1715), but the tradition lasted well into the 20th century.
