Drama is the specific mode of fiction represented in performance. The term comes from a Greek word meaning "action." The enactment of drama in theatre is performed by actors on a stage before an audience. The two masks associated with drama represent the traditional generic division between comedy and tragedy.
Drama is often combined with music and dance: the drama in opera is generally sung throughout; musicals generally include both spoken dialogue and songs; and some forms of drama have incidental music or musical accompaniment underscoring the dialogue. In improvisation, the drama does not pre-exist the moment of performance; performers devise a dramatic script spontaneously before an audience.
Drama eBooks, like other books, contain the scripts of plays with written dialogue and stage directions.
