In most operas, the roles created by the male figures primarily represent in the plot either the “hero,” “villain,” “lover,” “priest,” “brother or “father.” These characters are often one dimensional in contrast to all of the female roles who are given a much wider emotional range to represent. Indeed, many operas revolve almost totally around this female figure; her emotions and desires are the motivating factors for most of the action in one way or another.
