A supporting character is one who performs a role other than the lead or principal. Supporting roles range from bit parts to secondary leads. Some serve to enhance the action while others could be eliminated without affecting the basic story line.

In opera, however, sometimes they have the best tunes, and occasionally even stop the show!

In this talk we'll provide a brief survey of several of opera's most well-known supporting characters and discuss why, or even if, they should be considered secondari.
