breeches? A breeches role (also pants role or trouser role) is a role in which an actress appears in male clothing (breeches being tight-fitting knee-length pants, the standard male garment at the time breeches roles were introduced). In opera it can also refer to any male character that is sung and acted by a female singer. In the case of a woman playing the role of a young man, the part is often filled by a mezzo soprano or contralto. pvc dressThe operatic concept of the breeches role assumes that the character is male, and the audience accepts him as such, even knowing that the actor is not.
