Libretto is a term used mainly in opera and musical theater to refer to the text of a dramatic work that is set to music. However, there are many synonyms that can be used instead of libretto such as the script, score, manuscript, libretti, or book. In opera, a librettist writes the libretto and the composer writes the music. A successful libretto conveys the drama, emotion and story to the audience while also complementing the music. A libretto is an integral part of any performance and choosing the right words and phrases can make or break the entire production. Therefore, a high level of creativity and skill is required from the librettist to create a compelling and memorable work of art.
