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.
