Welcome to Wikipedia's portal for music. Music consists of sound heard over time. It is predominantly used to evoke emotion or thought in the listener. Music is often described as an art form that involves organized sounds and silence. It is considered by some cultures to be a language in and of itself. Music is also used as an accompaniment to dance and a means to communicate with spirits. Within the arts, music can be classified as a performing art, a fine art, and an auditory art form though the definitions of music vary according to culture and social context. Music becomes another soul of people.
Drawing on several of his earlier "Bab Ballad" poems, Gilbert imbued the plot with mirth and silliness. The opera's humour focuses on love between members of different social classes and lampoons the British class system in general. Pinafore also pokes good-natured fun at patriotism, party politics, the Royal Navy, and the rise of unqualified people to positions of authority. The title of the piece comically applies the name of a garment for girls and women, a pinafore, to the fearsome symbol of a naval warship.
