* ''Music/BlowsAgainstTheEmpire'' by Paul Kantner of Music/JeffersonAirplane was one of the earliest, released in 1970, only a year after ''Music/{{Tommy}}''. It is the story of how a rag-tag band of hippies hijack a starship, and was nominated for a HugoAward as best science-fiction work of the year in the "dramatic presentation" category--usually reserved for movies.

The "opera"-ness of the form varies significantly. Some present the point of view of a single (possibly unnamed) character, while others have explicitly-named characters interacting with each other in song (and likely performed by different singers). TheOtherWiki's entry for ''Music/{{Tommy}}'' suggests that "rock cantata" or "rock song cycle" might be a more accurate term, since a rock opera is purely a musical performance that is not intended to be staged or acted out. This is odd, since ''Tommy'' was the [[UrExample first]] [[TropeMakers widely]] [[TropeCodifier heard]] Rock Opera, and was farther on the opera side of this scale.
