According to this article: Censor (ancient Rome) and this Stanford University page the term Opera Publica has to do with the construction of buildings. Sarah Ewart (Talk) 20:55, 4 July 2006 (UTC)
Opus: Latin for "work". Opera: Latin plural of same, meaning "works". Publica = "public". Ergo, "Opera publica" means "Public Works". Nothing to do with musical performances. --GuillaumeTell 00:09, 5 July 2006 (UTC)
Sorry, but this is just a complete joke. The Romans did not have operas; the nearest they came, to the best of my knowledge, was the pantomimus genre. Opera Publica means public works - building, not music! Moreschi 11:06, 5 July 2006 (UTC)
