The players are leading members of aristocratic families, who dedicate themselves to encourage a finer taste in opera in six leading European cities. The Opera game is unique on several points. The sequence of play is decided by the players, through a delicate system of bidding, budgeting and decision making. The initiative of the players, the fame of the composers and the timing of the different characters have a subtle but decisive role in Opera.
In Opera the boardgame, the players influence the playing sequence. At the start of each round, the players choose how much they are willing to spend to hire the employees and characters. The player with the highest bid chooses the first role. The Impresario scouts for music pieces of the most famous composers. By inviting the Maestro to the city, you will add more grandeur to the performances in your opera house. The Critico gives a relentless judgment on the operas he visits.
