The history of Opera: In Florence (Italy), a small group of artists, statesmen, writers and musicians known as the Florentine Camerata decided to recreate the storytelling of Greek drama through music. Enter Jacopo Peri (1561–1633), who composed Dafne (1597), which many consider to be the first opera. Opera unites music, poetry, drama, and spectacle in the most elaborate and expensive of all art forms.
