The character of this typeface is expressed by long serifs that replace traditional drops. The serifs allow for some interesting discretionary ligatures, like “fa” or “Ta”. Contrast is distributed from monolinear in hairline and all the way to the extreme in the black style. Symbols and punctuation are drawn with monolinear strokes to give the typeface more playful typesetting. With two stylistic sets the typeface enables different typesetting opportunities. Its characteristics should be expressed in headlines, larger texts, show posters, displays, signage, etc. Read more in Case Study.

The Italian word opera means “work”, both in the sense of the labour done and the result produced.
Elegant strokes and straight serifs reflect the elegance in the controlled movement of the ballet dancers.
